Appeals

You can request an appeal if you want an independent tribunal to look at the decision again.

To request an appeal please put your reasons in writing within one month of the date of the decision and include any extra evidence.

We recommend you use our  revision/appeal request form [212kb].

We will look at the decision again (see Revisions), if we should, we will change the decision in your favour. If we can't change the decision in your favour, we will prepare a file with our reasons and evidence and submit it to the Tribunals Service.

The Tribunals Service is independent of the council, but governed by the same laws about how benefit is worked out.

You can request to attend the tribunal hearing in person or with a representative. Read more about the appeals process and hearing.

We aim to submit appeals to the Tribunals Service within 50 days, but it often takes longer. It can take a further 12 weeks or longer before the hearing. You might want to consider legal advice if you decide to request an appeal. You can find more information on The Tribunals Service website.
