LSP volunteer gets DLA award for client

Law Centre (NI)'s Legal Support Project (LSP) successfully represented a woman in an appeal against refusal of Disability Living Allowance (DLA).   

The client suffered from asthma, fibromyalgia, depression and anxiety. As a result, she found it difficult to go out unaccompanied and experienced difficulties with self- care.

The LSP helped her to collect supportive medical evidence for her appeal and an LSP volunteer represented her at the hearing. The tribunal awarded the Low Rate Mobility component for a two year period.

The client received a backdated payment of £847.95 and £21.80 per week for the remainder of the two-year period.

The LSP relies on pro-bono work to help people who would otherwise go unrepresented at social security and employment tribunals.
