About Fightback4Justice

Founded in 2013, Fightback4Justice is an award winning, non-profit organisation, providing specialised, expert advice and help on various welfare benefit claims; from advocacy and representation at court to guidance with forms for PIP, ESA & DLA.
Although based in Bury we offer comprehensive nationwide support, both face to face and through our email and phone advice line.

In the last few years our success has been so astronomical (we have a 95% success rate across all cases) our small but dedicated team is consistently inundated with hundreds of emails and calls to wade through; and as we rely entirely on donations we have been stretched extremely thin, with this in mind we have launched the VIP Fightback4Justice Online Platform.

For you, our clients, our aim with the VIP Platform is to provide you with a handy online directory of everything you will need to assist with your applications; from the extensive online library of fact sheets and claims forms, to template letters and well completed example forms, everything you could need to help you process your application quicker. On top of this vast library of information, our VIP members have access to the VIP Email and Phone service where we guarantee a priority response, allowing you to talk direct to people in the know and get the help you need. Click  ‘Join Now’ to become a member of our VIP Platform!

The medical I had which was all of 5 minutes long, the assessor commented how well written the form was. Thank you to the whole fightback team.

I would like to thank Fightback for all there help following my review for PIP in which my daily living activity was reduced to standard instead of enhanced. I am a VIP 2 member and using the fantastic resources was able to to complete my review form also knowing that help was available to me at any time. I also used the resources to complete my Mandatory Reconsideration and had my information checked by Fightback and used the advice given. Following the decrease in my award they supported me in filling in my appeal form when I was actually wondering whether to bother due to the stress. I am pleased to say that following a phone call from an appeals manager at the DWP my award of enhanced daily living has been reinstated so I no longer have to go to appeal which is a weight off my mind. Fightback has been there for support at all stages and I thoroughly recommend the services they offer.

Thank you Fightback. After being awarded zero points after the PIP assessment and the MR being rejected, seemingly out of hand, I was ready to give up. You convinced me I had a case and should go to Appeal and how glad I am that I listened to you. At the Hearing I was awarded 19 points! Thank you again Fightback.Catherine S.

Thank you so much to all the lovely members of staff including Michelle, Hayley, Susan who have all been so kind and supportive and whom of helped to keep my head above water. I am pleased to say that my PIP award has increased from standard to enhanced for both mobility and daily living for 3 yearsI have had 6 months of waiting for an appeal date and at times just wanted to give up and ‘hide away’ but I had faith in the Fightback4justice angels and can now try and move forward with my life. I wish I could walk, I wish I didn’t have constant pain but I now feel justice has been done with the help of this fantastic organisation. Much love and respect to you all.

5 star experience again. Filled out my son’s DLA form by phone with Michelle, almost 2hour ‘phone call going into great detail about his difficulties. He was awarded & I am so relieved. The forms are long and generally quite depressing to complete but Fightback provide a wonderful service which makes it so much easier. By signing up to VIP you can access a wealth of information if you prefer to complete forms yourself. Their success rate speaks for itself, I would not hesitate to recommend these guys.

Fightback are nothing short of amazing. The work that they put into fighting to get what people rightly deserve is incredible. No wonder they are award finalists. To say they are going strong with not 1p of funding speaks volumes. The negative feedback recently received is not called for. It is damn right spiteful. The fact that someone is clearly out to damage their reputation and somehow trying to hinder the good work they do is criminal and nothing short of pure jealousy. Keep doing what you do best and ignore the trolls. You don’t have over 50,000 supporters for nothing ❤️❤️❤️

I have used Fightback for many years now and I have recommended them to so many people I have lost count they are amazing. I think we have all experienced that feeling of complete and utter despair when the dreaded brown envelope drops through the door the not wanting to open it followed by sheer panic. One phone call to Fightback and you know that you could not of chosen anyone better. Their knowledge of the benefit system is second to none and with their understanding, empathy and gentle questioning you are guaranteed the best possible outcome in a system that aims to fail you at the first hurdle. Do not be misled by the fake reviews that aim to blacken the name of Fightback4Justice. Fightback are the true Angels of the North!!

Review for Fightback Facebook Page -PIP Renewal Form Filling in with AmyDate of appointment: 27/07/2018 I would like to say a huge thank you to Amy and Fightback with all the help that they offered to me back in July this year with my PIP renewal paperwork. In May 2017 I was awarded PIP Enhanced Daily Living Needs for 2 years.My renewal came through in July 2018.I suffer from severe anxiety, depression, PTSD and have Disordered Eating. When the renewal came through, I completely lost it and was so scared that I would lose my benefit. People had mentioned Fightback to me in the past and therefore I contacted them. I am so happy that I did, Fightback took care of everything for me and offered me reassurance which was much needed. Fightback sent my renewal off immediately in July this year and on Xmas Eve I received the dreaded brown envelope, but what wonderful news I not only kept my enhanced Daily Living but they also awarded me Standard Mobility. I was not required to attend a face to face assessment. My award is till October 2020. The benefit system is a very scary place and I just think it’s so wonderful that Fightback is there to support people and they really care. I will definitely use Fightback in the future, thank you so very much, I could never even start to put into words the relief I feel that my PIP has been renewed. Can you please let me know how I can purchase from your Amazon wish list, I would like to get you a few things. Wishing you all the best.

A massive thank you to all the Fightback team. My son had his PIP award reinstated and increased yesterday – Enhanced for DL and standard Mobility. The MR was so well written by Katie and Michelle and phone calls with others can only be described as being tremendously supportive and professional. Have been recommending you all to everyone who might need your services. Many ThanksFrances x

I had a lot of problems with my PIP claim. The assessment company were a nightmare and I felt like a wreck. I asked Fightback for help and Sarah was assigned to support me. Sarah sat in on my home PIP assessment. She took notes and reassured me she’d keep supporting me after the assessment. I would have gone to pieces without her as I couldn’t bear losing my Motability car. I got a great result and have kept my car. I believe nobody should go through the PIP or ESA ordeal without Fightback helping, from completing the form until you get the decision you deserve.

Eternally grateful for Cat’s & your help with my PIP Tribunal Appeal! Living 3 hours away from you I had never heard of you until a stranger on a Facebook illness page recommended yourselves & so glad I found you.Your website, telephone, email & services are fast, professional & superb & highly recommend them to all!It took an immense amount of stress away, which meant my symptoms didn’t flare up as much & so didn’t need to take as much medication.Apologies for the immense amount of evidence you had to go through & taking up 1/2 a filing cabinet…….I just couldn’t work out what would help.Best wishes to all,B 🙂

Got a form to change over from indefinite DLA to PIP in May. I contacted fight back immediately and booked an appointment with Amanda to fill in the form over the phone. It took about an hour. Very professional service. I would have struggled to fill it in myself so their help was very much appreciated. I received a letter yesterday to say I’d been awarded standard daily living and standard mobility. I’m not sure I would have been awarded if fightback hadn’t helped me. Highly recommended.

I contacted fight back for justice to help with my mandatory reconsideration for a refused PIP claim.They have been so so helpful in helping me with what I need to complete the MR.I am yet to complete the MR, however whatever happens I will continue to be a VIP member and pay the monthly fee.For £4.99 a month this is a small price to pay for such a worthy cause.This is stressful enough fighting back but with their support it helps relieve some of the pressure & sleepless nights.

A Huge Thank you to all the team at Fightback. I’ve just been awarded standard for both elements of my PIP award and as it was my first and I started this feeling positively ill at the thought of it all, I am so grateful for the advice and help, with the amount of information of information on your website and the quick replies to my emails and chats, your calm approach is just the best as I have been sitting on the floor in tears surrounded by bits of paper! This will make an amazing difference to me and I know it will to others so I’ll keep up my subscription as much as I can. I truly recommend your service to everyone finding it really hard to cope with all the difficulties that they encounter just trying to get the benefit they deserve.

A big thank you to Jade for helping me to complete my pip forms, transferring from a lifetime award on DLA! She took the time to listen and suggest ways to word the forms in a way that I couldn’t. She was very patient and understanding. Today I received the decision. ….enhanced for daily living and mobility with an ongoing award. Thank you Jade and Fightback. Clare Brooks.

Chloe helped me with my ESA form, I got put back into the support group for 18 months this time instead of12 months. Thank you Chloe and all of the team at Fightback. I know I could never have got this without you help. I have been helped in the past by fightback ,as have my family and friends . I can not recommend fightback enough,they are friendly, professional and most helpful. Anyone attempting to fill out these type of forms by themselves please don’t,let Fightback help you the money they charge is very little for all of the help and advise they give to their clients. Once again thank you Fightback.

Quick, professional and expert advice. Had my PIP withdrawn 18 months ago. Fightback4justice supported me in court before a tribunal and my benefit was re-instated, along with back payment. Just had my review forms, booked telephone appointment and then sent forms to the office. Forms completed by knowledgeable staff. All the panic taken care of. Just now have to wait for result. I would always use Fightback4justice and recommend their services to everyone. Superb service with helpful, knowledgeable staff

Absolutely fantastic, professional service! I used the information on the VIP Platform for my daughters Mandatory Reconsideration along with receiving email advice from the VIP team. Today we received the dreaded brown envelope and my daughter has been awarded Enhanced in both categories! So relieved! Fightback helped to ease the burden and stress of fighting for what my daughter was rightfully entitled to. We would highly recommend to anyone dealing with the PIP process.

I messaged fight back for help to fill in my form received a message within minutes from Lucy she made arrangements for me to fill in my form over the phone. When I rang at the time agreed Lucy made me feel at ease and helped greatly filling in my form over the phone. When finished she said she would get the form out to me the day after however I received it the next day. I went through it and she had done a fantastic job with it. I was so relieved it was done. Thank you very much Lucy for your help it was much appreciated. I’d highly recommend the services of fight back . I will use your services again xx

I knew the forms were coming and did not know what I was going to do. I had seen Fightback on my Facebook page and thought it would be good to check them out, they seemed to care about disabilities and what people were going through. I thought they were to good to be true, little did I know they were going to change my life. The hard work and dedication to others, when they themselves fight with their own issues, is beyond any expectation anyone could receive. They took the stress away when filling in the forms. It was like having a conversation and finding the form finished while doing this. Please, do not pass this opportunity for help, it will change your life too. I should not forget Cat, who came to my home and advocated for me. Her kindness and empathy I will never forget. Thank you to all who give of their time and change so many lives.

A fantastic job done thank you.Your services were very quick, polite and very understanding. I recommend Fightback 100% to help in any disability benefit claim they take the worry and stress out of form filling and helping with mandatory reconsideration and appeals. They all no there stuff and go above and beyond, not one of them take a wage and all donations are plowed back into helping anybody that needs there help.Fightback areSimply the best.

Fightback4Justice helped me get from reduced PIP and no Daily Living Expenses to Enhanced on mobility and Enhanced Daily Living Expenses by the Judge who within 5/10 minutes of entering the Tribunal (they had already decided before we entered the room I believe) this was due to Cat at Fightback who had produced the submission forms for their attention! Without Fightback not sure if it would have been overturned, I very much doubt it, however, I am extremely grateful to Fightback and will URGE anyone who is going through a similar situation to ask Fightback for their professional help. They should receive an award for being the most helpful and polite people I have come across and they show they care about you… Well done Fightback4Justice another Assessment maybe for me in about 18 months, so I will be using Fightback4Justice at that time!

Latest News

We were really pleased to be in a position to take 10 of our wonderful advocates to attend the National Diversity Awards final as finalists, in the Disability Community Group, we were also finalists in 2014, so it was a real shock to find we had been nominated by over 200 of our followers and clients again. There were over 24000 nominations so it was quite an achievement to make the final 8 in our group.

The event was held at the stunning and historic Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, with an abundance of amazing people, stars and groups all who had promoted diversity in the community and given outstanding assistance in some way to others. It was such an honour to sit among’st such wonderfully inspiring people and we were so happy we had been nominated and our important work was highlighted in this way. The event was recorded by Sky and will be shown on the community channel later in the year. We also received a letter from the House of Commons wishing us luck!

We did not win but that did not matter, we were part of such an amazing night and have some wonderful memories and photos to cherish and a certificate to say Fightback4Justice were finalists.
