? hello all, I’m newish, just been following and looking at this site, I’m self isolating at the mo, it’s so cold today, my joints and muscles are hurting bad, hope your all good, I’m looking to do Wk at home, do not know where to start? Used to be in the care/support sector, that’s why I’m the way I am, so I need to help people in a different way, but, I could do with the money, Amy ideas folks? ?

    Hello @crissy000 :) 

    Welcome to the community, how are you? 

    Thank you for joining, I'm glad you've joined us. I hope self isolation is going well and you are staying healthy. It is getting quite cold lately, especially up in the north where I am based. 

    Hopefully some of our users will have some ideas for you. 

    If you ever need any help navigating the community just give us a shout :)

    Hiya @crissy000 How's your day going? Are you managing to keep yourself occupied during self isolating?

    Care work is a great career and it makes sense to use your skills to help others in the future  :)

    Scope have a Support to Work service that supports people like yourself in finding employment.  They can help you update your CV, prepare for interviews and build your confidence so I'd really recommend contacting them.

    The Finding jobs section of Scope's website is also a treasure trove of tips so when you next have a cuppa tea (or similar!) sit down and have a read.  It includes links to various job sites that might have the perfect role for you, fingers crossed.

    Hi @crissy000Welcome on board glad you have joined

    May be worth you registering with some agencies or contacting job centre who have disability advisers

    I think work at home opportunities will increase in the future after companies have invested in their infrastructure due to covid
