Get to Grips with Personal Independence Payment
Get to Grips with PIP training course
Only about 14% of initial Personal Independence Payment (PIP) applications are successful first time round, and 1 in 4 people with a long-term health condition or disability are believed to give up on their PIP application due to a lack of support or because the application process has made them feel worse.
The Society Matters cic Get to Grips with PIP course is designed and delivered by experts in their field, so you can make your mark on these statistics.
