How accessible are DWP Assessment centres?

BBC Wales are aware of issues with people struggling to access PIP and ESA assessments because the buildings are not fully accessible. Examples include:

If you have experienced similar difficulties, BBC Wales would like to know what they were, and what the consequences were for you? For example, additional costs of getting to an assessment, or sanctions by the DWP for not turning up?

If you can help with this investigation, please contact Paul Heaney via email at, via Twitter @paulheaney67 or telephone 07860 592160.
