Resources to support PIP claims
Resources for DDPO Advice workers working with PIP claims
We have collected together various resources which may help when you’re advising around PIP, whether first claims or challenging decisions. We have also included some links to support with other benefits.
Some of you will be using this information already, but others have asked for links to resources at the Peer Network Meetings etc.
If you have other information/resources that you find particularly useful, please share them so we can publicise them more widely. Please send information to Liz Mercer, Associate Business Consultant, Inclusion London, firstname.lastname@example.org
