"So many thanks for your help with my application for PIP I don’t think I would’ve been able as an individual to be able to get a result that I have received.

The payment of PIP has really improved my standard of living. Instead of being a prisoner in my own home I am now able to get out with taxis and help with cleaning my home.

I must thank you and your staff for helping in this matter as I was so disappointed with my first application. It is a shame that individuals do not have the expertise or the prior knowledge of their rights. It takes an expert to be able to apply their knowledge in the health of others."

Some kind words

from our customers

Thank you for all your help over the last few years. In the end, it is a good result and much appreciated.


Thank all of you for your help, support, and understanding in winning both my cases for DLA and ESA. What would we have done without you!


Thank you so much for your help. You are a lifeline to people like me. God bless you.


Just to say a big "thank you"  to you all for helping me get my ESA. Its a big weight off my mind to have the massive help and expertise from you. You're the 4th emergency service! Thank you once again.


We are delighted with the service - wish I had seen it earlier.


Complicated forms are so difficult when you are struggling health-wise. You take away all the stress. We would not know what to do without you.
