    Hi Chezza43

    Some of my Customer feel exactly the same.  If you have a known learning disability you should be able to your Diability Employment Advisor (DEA) at the job centre.  But i have to say these are becoming increasing rare.  Have you told the Job centre that you are struggerling? Has your mum gone with you and explained it for you? Please dont feel that you are not good enouh for the jobs you have been applying for. As you have someow thing to offer, no matter how ou may feel.  Unfortunatly being unemployed is rather stressful, you can only do what you can do.  At least you are trying and that is half the journey.  Are you volunteering as that is a great way to show employers that they are committed and looks good on your CV.  Have you asked your JCP if there are any organisiations in your area that can help you with the.


    Chin up and Good luck
