'Our thanks to Shazad Sadiq for his assistance to my parents in claiming benefits .... it wasn't until Shazad intervened that we had any success in getting my mother attendance allowance. Not only that he assisted my father with carers allowance and pension credit, as well as a blue badge for my mother .... It is not only the financial benefit he has assisted with but his genuine concern and compassionate approach to my parents issues.'
'I am so grateful for the help with Attendance Allowance. I wouldn't have known where to start with that complicated form'.
