Hi I'm new here, despite years of disability benefit experience with Citizens Advice before my own MH issues I've had some terrible issues with UC since my partner had a stroke in Nov 21. But have found Scope really useful so registered today.

    Welcome to the community @ClaireCatMum :) It's good to have you on board! How are you today?

    I'm sorry to hear that you've been having some trouble with UC since your partner had a stroke. Please do let us know if you have any questions about this, as we have a category for questions and discussions relating to UC. I can see that you've already commented on a few discussions, which is great to see.

    By MH issues, are you referring to mental health issues? If so, are you receiving enough support to help you manage those problems?

    I'm glad that you've found Scope helpful before! I look forward to seeing you around.
