We are a member of Social Enterprise UK

WELCOME TO PERSONAL INDEPENDENCE
We are a small, social enterprise which cares passionately about disabled claimants being awarded the correct rate of disability benefits. The majority of our profits go into offering free advice and support to those who need it. We were founded by a legally qualified Expert, who saw first-hand the struggles which disabled people face against the system and felt compelled to offer proactive support to anyone going through the claim or renewal process.
Our Founder holds a Law Society Law Degree (LL.B Hons) along with the Post Graduate Diploma in Law for which she won one of only a handful of scholarships given by the Law Society in 2014. She is currently writing her Masters on Disability Law. This is an area about which she is passionate, in both her professional and personal life.
We are recognised by the DWP as being a Disability Committed Employer
In 2019 PIPP’s was shortlisted from 28,000 nominations to the final 8 for an ITV News National Diversity Award.
What makes us different?
- We understand the difficulties that claimants face when making a claim or a renewal and we aim to offer expert advice and support every step of the way.

The excellent legal advice and submission you prepared took so much stress off me and the fact that you answered my numerous questions and queries with such good humour made me feel like I had friend as well as an advocate. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
Just had Cat support me at my home assessment. Yes it might cost you. By god it’s worth every penny she’s was fantastic in every way. What a lovely lady. Travelled hundreds of miles to help me. I couldn’t have done it without you Cat.
