    When turned down for PIP you can appeal the decision, if that is turned down you can go to a tribunal.  The best people to speak to about this would be your local CAB   .  You would need to make an appointment to speak to a benefits specialist, which can take some time, but they will be able to assist in building a case to make the appeal.  The appeal needs to be logged in a set time, so be quick.  Get the ball rolling.

    Hi @iammrsR ,

    I would recommend that you start by looking at the information on the Scope website about finding advice including legal help. This should help you identify local advice services. It can be difficult to work out where you stand when things like this happen so if possible it would be good for you to get further advice about this. http://www.scope.org.uk/support/disabled-people/local/about
    As Martin has said above, you can appeal the PIP decision. Find out more on our PIP pages which link to various sources of information to help you through this process. http://www.scope.org.uk/support/disabled-people/money/pip
    If you're still having difficulties get in touch with us at the helpline and we can talk through your options with you. Anyone wanting to discuss benefits related issues can post in this section and I'll do my best to respond as quickly as I can.
    Good luck!

    Debbie :)
