TOPIC: DLA Decision

Hello Margaret,

Some CAB's can offer that kind of service, but it's usually the larger CAB's who offer tribunal representation.

There is nothing to stop you from attending and telling the tribunal about your Mum's care and mobility needs, that would be classed as an 'oral hearing'.

If your Mum is too ill to attend an appeal venue, then it is possible for a tribunal to convene in a claimant's home, called a 'domiciliary appeal'

However, you would need strong medical evidence from your Mum's GP and/or other health care professional she sees for the Tribunals Service to agree to a domiciliary hearing.

Sorry, I won't be able to reply to any further posts until later or even tomorrow, as I'm not long out of hospital, so have to pace myself and take regular rests.

Kind regards.
