Hello everyone,

I'm looking for some advice .I suffer with mental health a.e SEVERE ADHD, DYSLEXIA, DYSPRAXIA ,SOCIAL ANXIETY, DEPRESSION and GENERALIZED ANXIETY DISORDER and also I'm in the waiting list to be tested for AUTISM. I'm currently receiving PIP and LCWRA ,my partner it's my carer, my partner has suggested it might do us some good to start an evening part time courses for English and Maths that it will be 4 hours a week not only she feel like it will be beneficial for our future and to help with our wellbeing . Because my partner it's my carer we going to do the course together because we strongly believe being on benefits it's not forever but I'm extremely anxious and worried with everything on the news that we lose our benefits and put us in a worse situation than we already in.

If someone please could give us some advice moving forward if this actually going to affect our benefits .We would really appreciate it . Thank you
