I won the appeal :).

It was quite informal but because it was in the Court's we did go through a metal detector and our bags we're briefly checked. We were sat at a table and I was assessed by a social worker, a judge and a doctor and it took about 30mins. So screw you Crapita/DWP, I won in the end! The 'award' is for two years.

I'm glad it's over though, I'm going to use my back payments to pay for some therapy (I'll post more in my private thread).

Pity Crapita aren't charged for the social worker / judge & doctor's time - it might help them assess people properly first time around.  :-X

Thank you for the support.  :hug1:

I'm not happy with Crapita either, I know that I got there in the end but people shouldn't have to go through this to get what they're entitled to. I have literal scars from the process and it's made my MH a lot worse. Maybe if they had qualified people doing these assessments in the first place people wouldn't have to go through this. I was assessed by a paramedic for MH problems... Surely a psych or a MH nurse would have been more appropriate? The govt tried to save money but it's costing them way more in the long run with all of the appeals, which are won around 70% if the time. The system is an utter failure.
 I'm angry not just about my own experience but on behalf of all disabled people who go through this, it's disgusting  :>:(:.

Don't give up Tucan, I know it's hard but we can't let them win.  :hug2:

I nearly did the same, it's hard to fight when you have MH problems. There were several occasions when I wanted to crap out and I didn't think I'd actually win the appeal. I won in the end and I think you'll win because you need a lot more help than I do so you'll probably get the higher rates. Maybe if enough people fight, they'll change the system.  :hug1: :hug2:

Oh Vermilion I知 so pleased common sense and justice prevailed. The system is beyond messed up. I知 so glad you managed to keep going with the appeal. I知 pretty sure I値l have to go through this soon (I知 still on DLA, just waiting for the PIP switch).

Good luck with arranging some therapy. I hope this marks the start of some positive changes for you now xx
