I have been awarded PiP after being previously on DLA, however at a lower rate which means I will lose my motability car. I have been awarded 10 points for my conditions but the score needed was 12, the reason being they say I am able to find my way around (nothing could be further from the truth !)
I have no idea how to word the appeal letter, has anyone got any ideas/examples for me pls ? TIA

Yes definitely use the CAB ,they have specialist advisors who do this all the time and for free. They will do the entire appeal for you.
They know exactly how to word the letter and know the system better than the benefit agency themselves. We had to appeal a refused DLA award, we did it twice ourselves and were turned down. A CAB advisor then did it and we got the entire amount claimed ,paid in just 5 days and backdated 6 months.
If you haven't already done so, would your GP write a letter of support outlining why you cannot find your way around.
If you don't have a CAB office near you look in the telephone directory for welfare rights. They are a good alternative.
This site might help too.
