Autism Berkshire: Online Understanding Your Benefits Rights Workshop PIP for ages 16+

Event Details


Find out about your rights to claim Personal Independence Payment and how to make a claim, including for young people who have been awarded Disability Living Allowance (DLA) as a child, plus information about employment advice and support and workplace rights.

Please note that these workshops are for Berkshire residents only – we regret that we are not able to offer advice to people from adjacent counties, due to funding rules.

These free workshops are led by Autism Berkshire’s benefits service manager, Kevin Jackson, who has extensive experience of supporting autistic individuals and their families with benefit applications, appeals and at tribunal hearings.

This session will include detailed advice about claiming Personal Independence Payment (PIP), how to complete the application form, what supporting evidence to include when making a claim and the appeals process.

Kevin will also look at what employment advice and support is available and disabled people’s rights in the workplace.

This workshop is open to autistic young people and adults (aged 16+) and their parents/carers who live in Berkshire, or those who are attending a college or university in the county.

For more information about the workshop or support from our Benefits Service, email benefits@autismberkshire.org.uk or call 01189 594 594 (option 2) and leave a voicemail with your contact details.

  • These workshops are supported by Reading Borough Council’s New Directions College adult education service.
