    Thanks for the tag @steve51

    HI and welcome,

    You can put in a change of circumstances for a worsening of condition if you think he should be awarded mobility. Although do be aware that if you do this you will be sent more forms to fill in and return and you do risk him losing everything he already has. Of course they could award him a higher rate, along with the mobility part and the decision could also stay the same.
