Information & Advice
“We have today heard from DWP that they have agreed to an Attendance Allowance being paid to my wife which takes effect from 22nd June 2020.
As my wife’s health and mobility have been deteriorating considerably Over the past year or so we cannot say how much this funding means to us. Fortunately It appears that some local assistance has been brought to our attention and we are now in a position to proceed with arrangements for permanent help.
As I mentioned previously, you have been absolutely delightful in giving us the considerable help we needed to put the daunting paperwork together. Such a professional and straightforward lady. I am sure we wouldn’t have achieved such a favourable result without her patience .”
