    Thank you foxxy..... as I've said in previous posts , I'm newly " disabled" , and I've got to say , its only through disabled friends and peeps on here that I'm beginning to find out all these things I can get help with!!

    I've bookmarked those links , and I will most definately be having a good nose later on!!

    I was thinking, maybe we should have all the links in the first post so that we don't have to trawl the thread to get all the links? I'll copy and paste them into the first post if everyone is ok with that?
    If my typing is pants or I seem partcuarly blunt, please excuse me, it physically hurts to type. If I seem a bit random and don't make a lot of sense, it may have something to do with the voice recognition software that I'm using!

    Hi

    I don't know if you want to include details about places where disabled people can go to get help setting up their own business? It's a little known fact that there are more disabled self-employed people than there are able-bodied self-employed.

    Here are two sites that I have found to be particularly useful:

    www.disabled-entrepreneurs.net

    www.bbact.org.uk (This is the Blind Business Association)
