    Hi @Cindy1987Lukehurst and a very warm welcome to the community this afternoon! I hope you find it a supportive community here. Please feel free to look around and get involved in any way you want. I will move your post to the ASD section and hope other community members can engage with this. You may find that board particularly interesting :) 
    In the meantime, have you seen Scope's employment services? They aim to help disabled people into work and it may be something you want to look at.
    If you need help with anything else then please do not hesitate to be in touch!


Do you need advice on your energy costs?

You can get free advice from an expert adviser on managing energy debt, switching tariffs, contacting your supplier and more. Find out more information by visiting our
