    You were very lucky last time to have a paper based decision, most people have to have a f2f assessment. You could ask for a home assessment but you'll need a letter from your GP stating the reasons why you need this. Other than that do you have someone that can go with you to this assessment?

    Do you have a CPN / support worker / family member / friend who can help you?

    I would suggest ringing the assessors, explaining that because of your continuing poor mental health you -
    a) would need to organise a taxi,
    b) explain why a HV would be better - as poppy says if your GP / CPN will support you with this it should carry weight,

    Again, as poppy suggests have someone accompany you at the assessment.
    Alice Holt Forest situated some 4 miles south of Farnham forms the most northerly gateway to the South Downs National Park.
