Can anyone point me in the right direction to find a suitable part time job. I don't know where to start. Indeed is the only place I know to look and they have nothing. I really want to do something, I'm only 41. I want a bit of normality in my life but not over do things so I become unwell. I'm reluctant to do voluntary work forever because if I can volunteer I can work for pay but I need a considerate employer

    Good morning @Broreb1981. Have you looked at our information pages on finding jobs and disability-friendly employers? If you haven't already, it might also be worth checking out our free employment services? They might be able to help you get started along that path. :smile:

    It can be overwhelming can't it @broreb1981? What sort of jobs do you think you'd like doing?

    I need a sitting down job, maybe inputting data or something similar. I've worked in an office for 16 years.

    It might be worth looking on Indeed @Broreb1981 but it is always worth keeping in mind their level of disability confidence.

    I have also found it useful to look at individual companies' own information sections about disability and their considerations.

    Sometimes their official level is lower but their values and policies shine through. I hope this is at least semi-helpful.

    If there's anything else we can do to support you please do not hesitate to let us know. We are all here for you and listening to you  :)
