23rd November 2013
Hey people been a long time since I last updated this baby, yes had thought leaving it to rest but for some reason feel compelled to write, for last few months have got a bit busy and been through the emotions getting switched from Income Support to (ESA) Employment Support Allowance (under working activity group), a bit like Jobseeksers Allowance (JSA) but you get more help and they are not as harsh pushing people into work as most on ESA have a disability or illness. I got refered to the Career Development Group (CDG) to me help either get back into studying and eventually into work not an easy if you consider I have mild autism and not had much luck on the work front so far.
Got a lot of praise and respect for a great friend Emma Woodward who has cerebral palsy who until recently we both helped out together at the Oxfam Crawley shop, not only did she pick up a great Young Volunteer award with British PM David Cameron watching, but has also managed to get a nice new job in the last month, and really pleased for her and wish her best of luck in the future. :)
