Waiting time is interpreted as average clearance time - time taken from appeal receipt to outcome.</p><p>2. The latest period for which data are available</p><p>The volume of appeals against decisions on PIP has built up since it was introduced as a new benefit, incrementally over time, from 2013. As the number of appeals has increased, so has the average waiting time for an appeal outcome.</p><p>Waiting times are calculated from receipt of an appeal to its final disposal. An appeal is not necessarily disposed of at its first hearing. The final disposal decision on the appeal may be reached after an earlier hearing had been adjourned (which may be directed by the judge for a variety of reasons, such as to seek further evidence), or after an earlier hearing date had been postponed (again, for a variety of reasons, often at the request of the appellant). An appeal may also have been decided at an earlier date by the First-tier Tribunal, only for the case to have gone on to the Upper Tribunal, to be returned once again to the First-tier, for its final disposal.</p><p>Waiting times can fluctuate temporarily and geographically, owing to a number of variable factors, including volumes of benefit decisions made locally, availability of medical/disability members, venue capacity and the complexity of the issue in dispute. Any disparity in waiting times is monitored and investigated locally.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the importance of sharing data with the Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner and will do so where appropriate, including on the number of modern slavery victims coming to the UK.</p><p>Safeguarding modern slavery victims is a top priority for this Government. We provide guidance available to all frontline staff to help them identify and support potential victims of modern slavery. This guidance is available here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/509326/victims-of-modern-slavery-frontline-staff-guidance-v3.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/509326/victims-of-modern-slavery-frontline-staff-guidance-v3.pdf</a>.</p><p>We also provide guidance to the staff of the Single Competent Authority (SCA), where all decisions are made on whether someone is a victim of modern slavery, to ensure victims are correctly identified and receive appropriate care and protection. This guidance is available here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/797903/victims-modern-slavery-competent-auth-v7.0-ext.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/797903/victims-modern-slavery-competent-auth-v7.0-ext.pdf</a>.</p><p>The Government is also working to publish statutory guidance to further improve the identification and support for victims.</p><p>In addition, we are currently conducting a review of the training received by First Responders, to ensure that they are aware of their responsibilities, and that they can effectively connect victims to the support they need.</p>
