STAND wrote to the Justice Centre as members has experienced difficulties in accessing the building and then had more problems once inside the building when they went to PIP appeals.
We received a warm welcome when we visited the Centre and discussed all the problems that members had experienced. We were taken on a tour of the building and suggested ways to make the building more accessible. The staff we met were very receptive to these suggestions and are looking into what can be done inside the building.
The sad fact remains that the building itself is too far away from a car park and even the taxi drop off point is a far walk away from the door. The staff did suggest that in the future they are looking at the possibility of video links so people appealing might not have to leave home.
We will keep you posted as to progress.
