Between 26 February and 31 March we have won £102,017.60 in backdated benefits for our clients. They will also receive an average weekly increase of £114.25.

One client has thanked us and said that the money is "life-changing".

Derek* won his Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) appeal and was awarded back pay of £4600 and a monthly increase of £336.20.  He will also get a full Council Tax reduction.

We've helped him with a new claim for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and he will be getting a backdated payment of £1500. On top of that he has started receiving Universal Credit and Child benefit for his son.

Three other clients are due more than £15,000 each in backdated disability benefits.

We'd like to thank all of our advisors and volunteers for a tremendous achievement.
