Where to send additional evidence?

hi all
I’m still waiting for an assessment (submitted my form around 20th October)! I have a couple of questions: 
1) is there a way to get DWP/ATOS to get the claim moving quicker? Is there someone I can involve regarding this? 
2) since submitting my claim form I have had a few more letters etc which I would like to send in as additional evidence. Where do I send these? And is there any chance that additional information will actually move my application further down the pile? Or the opposite? 

Thanks

    Hi 

    All you can do is wait for an assessment there are huge backlogs 

    You send extra evidence to the same place you sent your form make sure you put a note with it and put your ni number on every page 

    Sending extra wont move your case any quicker

    thanks
    i guess I’m worried whether sending extra evidence will actually DELAY my case?

    It could possibly but I doubt it if you haven't had assessment yet 

    How valid is the extra evidence does it explain how your daily living is affected 

    If it is just general letters that dont outline this it may not be worth sending in my opinion anyway
