CPAG's Upper Tribunal assistance project can provide advice and assistance to advisers and support workers helping claimants to challenge tribunal decisions in welfare benefit and tax credit cases.
The support provided includes:
We are able to correspond with you about the case via email and telephone and can review the tribunal papers.
You are eligible to access the service if you are an adviser or support worker working to provide free advice and assistance to benefit or tax credit claimants living in England or Wales.
You can access the service if you have a client who is unhappy with the outcome of an appeal to the First-tier Tribunal and you want help in advising/assisting them to challenge the decision.
To access the Upper Tribunal assistance project service please fill in the online referral form. We will get back to you within one week of receiving your message.
Please be aware before accessing the service of any deadlines that apply in the case.
The Legal Education Foundation is delighted to be supporting this project.
