    I want to be self-employed as a designer (I am fully skilled qualified with market ready design products!!)  with Permitted Work scheme while with ESA Support Group. Is there any agency in London who support me?
    I don't want to risk losing ESA as my energy is very limited.
     I am not doing it for making money but want to use my talent recognised and offer great gift goods, addressed for sick and disabled or issues like loneliness or domestic abuse.

    Hi and welcome I know the job centre in some areas do a support programme for those wanting to set up in business , I would imagine an agency would charge you for their services so you may be better off looking at charities or there may be some info here in our employment section
    Here to help with my experience in hunan resources and employment rights
