This workshop is for individuals, families, carers and advocates to help you understand the questions on your PIP application form more clearly and enable you to fill it in.
To attend the workshop the person who needs help and support must meet the DWP eligibility criteria. You must have a long-term health condition or disability and face difficulties with ‘daily living’ or getting around. You must have had these difficulties for three months and expect them to last for at least nine months, unless you are terminally ill (you don’t expect to live more than six months).
You may get the daily living component of PIP if you need help with things like:
• preparing or eating food
• washing, bathing and using the toilet
• dressing and undressing
• reading and communicating
• managing your medicines or treatments
• making decisions about money
• engaging with other people
You may get the mobility component of PIP if you need help going out or moving around. If you are unsure if you are eligible, still come along and we will work through this. Please also bring your PIP form with you and we will work through it together during the workshop.
