jobs for disabled teens

I have been trying to find a job lately, and it's been a bit difficult. I am 16 years old and I am in a wheelchair for most of the day. Has anyone had experience with job searching with a disability and know any that will be best for a teenager specifically? Thanks!

    @cm111 hi and welcome to scope, scope does offer employment advice and someone will point you in the direction for that so check back tomorrow?
    Also have you considered doing some voluntary work? always looks good on a young persons CV.

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    It is difficult for any teenager to get a job due to restrictions on employing people until they have reached official school leaving age 

    Its not impossible but a lot of companies just won't employ young workers 

    As above voluntary work may be an option
