Hi, my name is aydin! I'm waiting for a tribunal hearing for my son. Can anyone help?
I am the mother of Gani who has been an OCD sufferer since he was 16, he is now 39. Over the years when I was in work and because there was no support or care through the NHS for mental illness, I paid for consultations and therapists for him all privately. I am now retired and not in a position to help financially. He was on DLA, he was sent a form to be assessed to switch to PIP, he attended the session himself, reported that the assessor was very sympathetic to him and thanked him for providing a true insight into the sufferings with OCD, then proceeded to give him no points on anything. I asked for the mandatory review and are now waiting for the tribunal hearing. It will be a remote hearing. I have no experience in these matters and he, as a sufferer is not in a position to fight this out. Can someone please help.
