    Scope is a public forum and we don't allow you to use personal information such as phone numbers, email address etc because anyone can see them and we value other peoples safety.

    Do you currently claim any benefits? if you do then your local job centre will help you with a CV.

    Hi @mdw123 and welcome to the Community.  It is nice to meet you and thank you for sharing with us.  May I ask what type of work you are looking for?  Have you spoken to anyone at your local job centre to ask for some help as often an adviser can help you with applying for jobs, writing a CV, etc?  

    SCOPE have a Support to Work online and telephone support programme which may be of help to you if you would like to take a look at their link below which gives you further information about them -

    They can be contacted on - [email protected] or on 0300 222 5742.

    Also may I suggest contacting the British Dyslexia UK Association to see if they can be of any help to you -

    I hope the above information is of some help to you and I wish you well in your search for work.  Please keep in touch and let us know how you get on.  If there is anything else we can help you with at all then please don't hesitate to ask.  All the best.  :smile:

    HI @mdw123 How is the job search going. I suggest you work with your local job centre and register with some employment agencies as well. The first action is to put together your CV there are lots of guidelines on the internet to help you do this including some templates which will help you structure the CV by adding in your details
