Cerebra Benefit Changes at 16 (PIP) Workshop

Tuesday 11th. September, 2018. 10.00am – 2.00pm
St John’s Church Hall, Church Lane, Guilden Sutton, Chester. CH3 7EW

The main focus of the workshop will be looking at the change from DLA to Personal Independence Payment, and also looking briefly at Employment Support Allowance and the introduction of Universal Credit. We also discuss the issue of appointeeship. This workshop is aimed at parents of children aged 13-16.

The workshop is led by David Williams from Cerebra. David has been delivering training sessions for 15 years, has worked as a parent support worker for 8 years and as a welfare rights officer previous to that, so has been helping families to claim benefits for more than 20 years. His son has a diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome and ADHD so he is familiar with the challenges that parents face.
