Hi, my name is Jonleeds!

Hi, I'm Johnny from Leeds,  I survived a serious head injury when I was involved in a bicycle road accident aged 19 that left me in a coma and with amnesia when I came around. This took many years of recovery and derailed my academic progress and career plans. Despite this I've tried to build a life for myself even in the face of constantly battling the benefits system who as various medical problems have mounted up are ever trying to claim I'm 100% fit for work.
I'm hoping to find some guidance to help me navigate my latest benefits catastrophy by registering with the Scope website, so fingers crossed !
