    Hi there my name is @durhamjaide2001 but you can call me Jaide if you want. I'm a member of Scope I'm also volunteering in one of Scopes charity shop as part of my placement. I decided to join the online community as I want to volunteer on here one day as well as the shop. As I get to help people directly with disabilities in the shop I don't always do.

    Hello @Hazel123. Welcome to Scope's forum. It is great to see you have joined us. How are you at the moment?

    Hopefully, you can learn more about those things here (and not go more insane!). In the meantime, is there anything, in particular, you would like to learn about these things?

    Thanks for sharing a little with us about yourself. It is always wonderful to hear a little about our community members.

    Would you feel comfy sharing more with us about your puppy - e.g., breed and name? Most of us here love dogs and pets more generally.

    Take care for now and we will look forward to, hopefully, hearing from you again soon  :)
