Anything worrying you, troubling you and is a problem - you can ask for support and advice. Look at past post, even.

Support worker or kitchen assistant is easy first job to get, you just need references. Doing online course in health and social care can help and it is short course so suitable for everyone on oplex courses, you are in UK or somewhere else?

Healthwatch has good voluntary administration jobs, and may get your foot in the door, need good english and computer skills

My other friend worked with/without her brother in market stall and got two houses - just selling children's shoes

Having good english and maths will open doors for you

I hope I helped
