    Hi, my son is 19 and has autism.
    He has 2 part time jobs now. He is getting on well with these.
    One job is housekeeping in a Best Western hotel. One job is cleaning offices, working for Norse. Both are  good employers for people with some learning difficulties. It may be worth writing to and sending you cv to them.
    Norse have a website where they advertise jobs in certain areas.

    If you don't mind me asking, how old are you?
     In our area (Norwich), there is an organisation called MINT, who help young people between the ages of 16 and 25, with work experience and finding work. There may be something similar where you live?

     Have you got an up to date CV? Gaining experience by volunteering in between jobs, is a good thing to have on your CV. Employers will be impressed if they see this on your CV and this may help with getting work too.

    There is a good benefits checker on You will then be able to see what you are entitled to if you are currently unemployed. 
    What kind of work have you been doing?
