I have just had my claim for DLA turned down after waiting 4 months. I would not have applied but my sons consultant told me to. I have had a very stressful year. Alfie has had 3 sets of joint injections including his tendons. I have had so much time off work & really dont know what my next avenue is. Can anyone advice me?
Thanks

Hello, poor you and poor Alfie too. How old is he and how long have his problems been going on? I know that they are clamping down on adult applications but to do so for a child, well, words fail me.

I know that adults on here who are initially refused appeal (almost as a matter of course) so I think that may be your best move. I have had no experience of this but I know that we often refer people to their local CAB so please contact them soon and I hope they can help. I wish you both well. DD

Alfie is 5 years old & has had JIA since he was two. This year has been particulary difficult!
I am currently getting a referral due to me submitting some new evidence.
The awful thing about this situation is I was told initially by a top consultant to apply for this & I will not give up now after waiting 4 months for a decision.
Thank you I am aware of the CAB route & I will be contacting them.
It's a very grey area & I can't quite work out why some adults/children receive it & others get rejected. It's all very confusing
