TOPIC: letters from friends/family for appeal

letters from friends/family for appeal 5 years 11 months ago #71979

I am blanking on this so advice would be much appreciated. Several people have said they will be happy to do letters for me but what sort of thing do they need to write? also theres a couple of hubbies 'dog walking friends' who have heard all about my problems over the years... would statements/letters from them be allowed?
this is for my esa appeal, I'm in wrag and should be in support. thanks guys

Any evidence you offer needs to be relevant, so simply saying "I know this person really well and they should be in the support group" won't help.

You need to consider what this person knows about you that is relevant to the criteria for the support group.
