Getting the application form right – i.e. providing enough good information about your condition, and them confirming that information at the assessment is absolutely essential to a successful application for PIP.

There is a wealth of good quality general information available about PIP, particularly the Disability Rights Guide to claiming PIP. The information contained in this PIP Pack however focuses on the experience of thalidomide affected people and their individual needs.
