    Hi @nimo - Welcome to the community from me too. Thank you for joining. Scope's 'Support to Work ' scheme that Ami mentions may very likely be a way forward for you. Please let us know how you get on & if we can support you in any other way. :)

    Hello everyone, thank you all for the welcome. I have just found out about access to work and I will be checking it out. The thing is I have don’t similar things in the past which haven’t helped much. I will definitely give it a go.

    Hi @nimo

    I have had some great help/support with “Access to Work” when I returned to work in 2006.

    They came to my workplace & organised all of the adaptations in & around my workstation.

    I ended up with a whole new work area.

    This didn’t go down well with my other work colleagues .

    As they had all been there many years before me.
