The DLA Appeal has gone in my favour.
- Severe mobility impairment finally recognised.
- Care needs acknowledged but minimal award granted.
- To be reviewed Sep’13.
Shame it’s going to go on rent, food and utilities…!!
23 Aug 11 Update:
Contacted by CAB whom I forgot to call in the heady days since the result came through. We agreed that though the Care component is disappointing, acknowledgement of my mobility needs is a huge step forward in the right direction.
I will not pursue a review of the Care decision. This has been an incredibly soul-destroying experience in some respects. The case will be closed until the Review, at which time I will definitely enlist the assistance of the CAB should I summon the courage needed to put myself through this all over again.
