PIP tips for family carers

Want to know more about Personal Independence Payment (PIP)?

Our free sessions are designed for family carers of an adult with a learning disability who is aged 16 or over. 

The sessions give family carers the confidence and information they need to support their relative with their application for PIP (which is replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA)), and include practical tips and information about:

  • preparing for the PIP application
  • filling in forms
  • how the DWP assesses and scores people
  • preparing for the face to face assessment
  • the new appeals process
  • and more......
