Hi all. I’m wondering if someone knows if there are any third sector organisations that can provide appeal representation in the Alnwick area of Northumberland. I have a friend there who is claiming PIP, but should she need to challenge the decision, she will need assistance. She has tried the local CAB and they don’t rep appeals. Any ideas?

I am sure that I will get in trouble for once again touting for work*, but I am at Shelter in Newcastle and we are happy to advise on PIP appeals and to do form filling etc. throughout the North East

*We have really seen the benefits work dry up during the lockdown and I have been strong-armed into doing more housing casework. So anything to get me out of that really…
