DLA to PIP and Warrington Disability Awareness Day

DLA to PIP

The emigration from DLA to PIP for long-term and indefinite awards is going to start happening from July 13th 2014 for postcodes starting with BB. This has been brought forward as the original date was going to be October and DWP was going to start with fixed term awards first instead.
