Just to let you know that CPAG is running a seminar looking at -

* how DWP ‘safeguarding procedures’ can be used to help ESA claimants who suffer with conditions which affect their mental health or cognition to avoid benefit refusals; and

* how to help claimants dispute decisions and reclaim benefit when ESA has been disallowed.

Speakers include Corin Hammersley and Owen Stevens from the Royal Borough of Greenwich and David Simmons and Dan Norris from CPAG.

For more information about the seminar, which is going to be in London on Wednesday 2 March, please see Using ESA ‘safeguarding’ and dispute procedures
