Hi 

I’m 48 and have had a lifetime autoimmune disease that’s left me with problems of chronic fatigue, pain and mobility issues. I’ve not worked for a long time and I’ve lost a lot of confidence. 

Is is there any retraining or support I can get in the Edinburgh/Midlothian area in Scotland to see if its a possibility for me In the future?

many thanks Cath.

    Hi @cath39
    We don't cover Scotland so we have no Scope services in your area.

    I had a google though and found the Into Work group.

    Into Work provides a one-to-one employment advice and support service for people with a disability or health condition who live in Edinburgh, East Lothian or Midlothian. 

    They may be worth checking out.
