My son was placed in Support Group on ESA regs 29 & 35 as he has enduring MH problems & is a suicide risk. Now, 4yrs on they're hassling for him to attend a WCA. Having lost his autobiogaraphical memory 31/2 yrs ago & finally diagnosed with CPTSD & DID he's clearly worse than when they put him directly in SG without face to face assessment.
My question is, as his Parent/Carer & Appointee, is it legal for DWP to sanction my son if I'm the one refusing to take him to an assessment? I refuse to put my son under duress that will exacerbate his symptoms & increase risk of suicide & although our GP will support with letter but I've no faith they'll accept it this time round as they have his medical records & I've explained clearly that he's worse than he was.
