On benefits and finding it hard to make journeys?

On benefits and finding it hard to make journeys?

In March 2017 the DWP changed the rules so that people who find it hard to make journeys because of mental health problems would be entitled to less benefit than people who find it hard for other reasons.  In December 2017 the courts said this was unlawful. So now if you have a mental health problem that means you are unable to plan a journey, follow the route of an unfamiliar journey without help, or follow the route of a familiar journey without help, it counts towards your entitlement.
