In order to help a deaf person, even simply lowering your face covering to speak (maintaining social distance) then putting it back on is a massive help.

Hi Everyone I seen this information on a post on Facebook, thought if anyone may be looking for some information. DWP have recently said that DLA to PIP conversions have now been suspended. Read on for moreโ€ฆ According to information sent to advice organisations, DWP have stopped work on all DLA to PIP conversions, ie where people on DLA have to re-apply for PIP. This includes conversions which are already under way โ€“ DWP say that people do not have to proceed with any action because their DLA awards will not be stopped but extended until after the Covid-19 crisis is over. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME? If you are still on DLA and *havenโ€™t* had a letter from DWP telling you that you have to apply for PIP, you donโ€™t need to do anything โ€“ your DLA award will continue and you wonโ€™t get a letter during the Covid-19 crisis. If you are on DLA and *have* had a letter telling you to apply for PIP, your application for PIP will be suspended whatever stage it has reached, and your DLA will continue until after the Covid-19 crisis. This will apply whether you have sent back a form or not, or been to a face-to-face assessment or not, or if you are still waiting for DWPโ€™s final decision after an assessment. If you were on DLA and are now on PIP, this change wonโ€™t affect you. If youโ€™ve recently asked for a mandatory reconsideration (MR) or appealed against the level of your PIP award, you still need to go through that process. If you lost DLA when assessed for PIP, DWP will NOT reinstate your DLA. You still have to go through the MR and appeal process to get PIP.
Hello our friends and family We're so full of festive cheer And we'd love to wish the lot of you A merry Christmas and New Year What a time we've had this year With trips and clubs and such You've made our jobs so enjoyable And we'd like to thank you very much So enjoy the festive season And the fun times with your kin Remember our great events next year We'd love you to join in!
