MS. IB -> WRAG -> SUPPORT = SUCCESS!! was created by CatherineS
I posted a thread recently about having MS and being put in the WRAG group.

I sent in the form for appealing but in the meantime I had my first work-focussed meeting at the JobCentre.

The advisor was very helpful, she gave me the number of the DWP office that was dealing with my claim so I called the decision maker and he said I should also send in a "reconsideration letter" (i.e. just an ordinary letter explaining why I think they should reconsider).

Anyway, this morning a very thin brown envelope arrive, and joy of joys they have put me in the support group!!!!!!!

However, in the meantime I had made an appointment to see my MP at his surgery next week, and I still intend to go and meet him as I want to make my point for all the other people with MS (as well as everyone else of course!) whose disability does not neatly fall into the WCA descriptors.

Will report back, so watch this space....!
