    Hi @cupcake1 Sorry to hear this, have you seen Scope's Support To Work Scheme? They provide a 12-week programme that offers tips and advice on gaining employment, help with creating a CV, etc :)

    Hi @cupcake1, I'm glad @Ami2301 has been able to give you information about Support to Work, it's a great resource!

    These work and career Scope articles might also be worth looking at too.

    Please do let us know how you get on. :)
