ESA and attempting work

scorcherscorcher Member Posts: 2 Listener
Hi All,
I'm in receipt of ESA  support group but there is a job I believe I can do and really would like to try. I would need to be self employed, however I don't know for sure whether or not I'm capable of working due to my disabilities. Is there a way to try and work as well as trying out working to see if I can do it? I'm worried if I come off ESA and find I can't work, I will end up stuck. I know UC is a real faff and people lose money transferring to that. I don't want to lose ESA. I'm currently feeling trapped and know working will help my mental health. Thanks.
