    Hi Debbs and welcome

    Can you get f2f advice from CAB or similar ?
    You might try involving you local MP, that is what we elect them for.

    Hi @debbs, I hope you're doing okay and I'm sorry to hear that things have been tough. How are you feeling at the moment? 

    Glad that your universal credit is sorted and fingers crossed you'll soon be able to say the same about your ESA tribunal. Hope today is as kind as possible to you.
