I'd really appreciate some input here as my circumstances have drastically changed recently and I'm feeling a little lost.

I was made redundant during a TUPE process.  The new incoming employer insisted on changing the shift pattern and because I had reasonable adjustments in place for my disabilities, the new shift pattern of much longer days just was not possible for me to do.  I was offered redundancy on that basis and I accepted as I knew that if I transferred over, worked under protest and then left I would be in a worse position with no income whilst waiting 1 - 2 years for tribunal.

I know I am no longer able to continue in the same kind of work due to the stress involved and the impact it had on my physical and mental health, so I need to change career and ideally find something working from home where I don't have to deal with people much!  I'm now in my mid 50's and have no clue as to the type of job I could do now or where to look.

Any suggestions would be really appreciated as I want to continue to work whilst I am still able to.
