    HI,
    You can either request the Tribunal online or by post by filling out the SSCS1 form, more information here. https://www.gov.uk/appeal-benefit-decision/submit-appeal
    To start with you just need to give a brief reason for requesting the appeal. After that's done you can send more information/evidence if needed.
    I'd advise you to get some expert advice regarding this from an agancy near you. If you can get representation then even better. For this start here.. put your postcode in and choose a topic "welfare benefits" and it will tell you what's local to you. https://advicelocal.uk/
