Disability rights and welfare services

We have launched a new drop in surgery with Central Advocacy Partners. To book a space contact CAP on 01324 633 321 or call our office 0141 2582760.  This service provides legal advice specifically to disabled people and their families. Our other drop in surgery with Glasgow Centre for Inclusive Living is on 20 Nov 2017 from 10:00 until 16:00 at GCIL offices. Please contact either us or GCIL to book a slot if you can. 

 

 

So far we have been receiving great feedback. Today two PIP Appeals were granted without the Appellants having to give evidence. This is due to us recovering medical records and obtaining medical reports through the legal aid system to support the cases.  At appeal stage around 75% of our cases have been successful. More importantly it has not cost our clients any money as they all qualified for Legal Aid! 

 

This new service  provides

 

  • drop-in clinics for general advice
  • advice and help on applying for Universal Credit, Employment Support Allowance and Personal Independence Payment
  • advice on problems with self-directed payments and housing
  • help and advice preparing for appeals
  • representation at appeals
  • advice on applications for and appeals of other benefit decisions
  • home visits where necessary
  • weekend and out of hours services
  • community care law advice
  • power of attorney and guardianship orders
  • legal advice on and support to challenge decision makers
