I'm about to be out of work (redundancy day 1st July), effectively ousted out of work because of bullying & inaccessibility, but that's another story. I have no idea of what to do jobwise, as I am physically incapable of doing what I'm qualified to do, and I'm a bit long in the tooth to become a footballer's wife (as I believe it's fashionable to have just that ambition, rather than work for a living!?!). I thought that I'd start by visiting the Shaw Trust, as they facilitate work placements for disabled people. I found that the local Shaw Trust has shut down, as it has had funding cuts. The ethos behind the Shaw Trust is, "Ability To Work", and I referred service users to them in the past when I was able bodied & thought I could conquer the world, with my fancy pants joints & liquid mobility! Opportunities are lessening because of severe cuts. I believe that the hardest hit are people with GENUINE disabilities. I say genuine, because about 90% of people I've filled out forms for are folk that take the pee. The Government are saying they want us to work, but are robbing us of services that enable us to do so.
