Hello, I'm a mildly Dyspraxic female with spacial awareness and co-ordination issues, also has Dyscalculia (number Dyslexia), is quite shy and reserved (and possibly Autistic/has some social anxiety issues) who is looking for work near Maidstone, Kent, as I'm looking to relocate there at the end of next month.

I'm unable to drive at the moment as I've not yet passed my theory or practical tests (but this is something I'd like to achieve by the end of the year as I'm aware that driving will open up a lot of opportunities for me job-wise).

I've worked in Administration roles in the NHS for the past 2 years (Started in 2019 with a Business Admin Apprenticeship) and am mainly looking for a career change, ideally a mix of physical and non-physical tasks.

I was considering a Traineeship/Apprenticeship in Gardening as I have experience of doing this in my spare time, or something in the Mental Health sector as I have personal experience of this.

Does anyone know of any good employers/websites to try?

Also looking for a supportive workplace environment, disability confident if possible, as my previous employers have not been understanding of my Dyspraxia and Dyscalculia, despite me telling them about these in detail in the interview process and in my jobs when colleagues have asked me why I'm doing things so slowly and asked me to speed up, even though I explained that I couldn't go any faster because I'd be more likely to make mistakes.

Thanks and apologies for the long post.
