I have been out of work for 12 years, after failing University, found out I am dyslexic at the end of last year. I went to my GP who said he could not help me, as dyslexia is an educational difficulty not a medial one. Went to my Jobcentre who said I need to be claiming benefits to get any help from them. I don't claim any benefits, I have borrowed a lot of money, hence I am in a lot of debt, because I thought I could get a job and pay the money back. I don't want to claim any benefits as I can work. I have a law degree (2.2) I failed the Legal Practice Course (just the one exam subject but it will cost £10,000 to do the course again). Now that I know I am dyslexic after my assessment last year I can get support from the University/College if I can do the course again, as my assessment states I need extra time, etc. I volunteered as an adviser for Citizens Advice Bureau for some years, and I am doing volunteer work at a Law for 8 months. But I really need a job.
