I was volunteering at Shelter North East for two years up to September 2018, primarily helping people complete forms, especially PIP. Since October I have been studying MRes Digital Civics at Open Lab in Newcastle University, and have just returned to Shelter as a volunteer and also to undertake my course project.

As part of my research, I would like to learn about other advisors’ expertise and experiences of helping people make PIP claims, especially if they have used anything to assist clients prepare (such as diaries). If anyone would be able to discuss this with me in the form of an interview, I would be glad to hear from you. This would form part of my research data; I will provide a briefing and share the results of my research subsequently.

Kind regards
