    Hello and welcome to the community @lisathomas50 :) I'm glad you've found us. 

    I'm sorry to hear that you had coronavirus earlier this year. I hope that you're feeling better now? 

    You mentioned needing some help finding a suitable job. Scope actually have a Support to Work service, which you might like to look into. They're a really lovely team, and they can help you to find and apply for suitable employment. 

    I wish I had a camper van! Where's the best place you've been in it?

    Thank you for your reply Lisa. It's lovely to get to know you a little. You've certainly had a year worst than most, but it's great you are such a positive person, which has doubtless helped.
    Please do consider Scope's 'Support to Work' programme, which has helped many. There's also some info about looking for work from Scope: https://www.scope.org.uk/advice-and-support/work-careers/looking-for-work/   in the meanwhile. Please do let us know how you get on, thank you. :)

    Great @lisathomas50 :) You'll have to keep us updated on how you get on. 

    Caring is such a noble profession I reckon, but very hard work I imagine.

    Hi Lisa, Hey come out in your camper it's awesome!. I live near Cardiff. I left my old house in March to live in a camper and then moved back in July to sell mine and buy a better one - Now I live full time in a much better Motorhome on the outskirts of Newport. But I love the life!

    Hello and welcome @lisathomas50

    That sounds like it must have been a brilliant trip in the camper van. Do you have plans to travel anywhere next year?
