Hi My name is Ade i have just joined the group as looking for advice please. I am 29 and work full time in the NHS. I have partial vision on my right eye due to being born early. I also have the learning difficulties Dyslexia and Dyspraxia and Anxiety and Depression. I have managed all my life with little/no help and struggle occasionally. Even though I work full time is there any help out there for individuals like myself please? If so what type of help please?
Thank you for reading my message.

    @Adeblue13 good evening and welcome to scope, how are you today?
    As far as help at work is concerned you should talk to you HR dept. with help from your union.
    Financial help could be avaliable from PIP which is a non means tested benefit payable to those in or out of work, and is based on your care and/or mobility issues.

    A big welcome to the community from me too @Adeblue13 :) As the others have said, there are a few different areas of support out there, so please do let us know what it is you're looking for help with. 

    Are you receiving any support for your mental health at the moment? 

    I've moved your post into our employment category for now, and renamed your post so that other members can find it more easily.

    Hi Thank you
    for your answers. I did have help for my mental health but it’s stopped now I am still on medication. 

    As far as help goes I was looking at what help I could get in general as I don’t drive due to my eye sight and things like that I work full time so I guess it would be difficult. Just like getting on the property ladder is. Thank you for reading my message.
