I've split this off from the topic you had attached it to as your post is on a different subject than what the original is about. I've also retitled it to something more relevant and moved it here where it will hopefully ring you some helpful replies.

Are you wanting to know what support could be available in your area, or are you looking for some more support from here, or a bit of both???

Wrt support from here, we can offer you emotional support and understanding based on what we have experienced, suggestions and advice about things that we have tried, such as meds, treatments and therapies. For access to info related to financial matters we can sometimes find linkys that may be helpful, same with the medical side of things. For what could be available in your area, your GP may be able to help with details, referrals etc, there may be groups who could put you in touch with agencies and organisations who could be of help, but the actual accessing of these services ultimately has to be done by you and those who may help you in your day~to~day things.

You could ask about seeing an Occupational Therapist or someone similar, they may be able to help with getting you access to equipment that could help with the day~to~day aspects of your life.

Depending on the sort of financial help you're looking for, there are people who can help with budgeting, debt repayment etc as well as reviewing what you have coming in and giving you an idea of what you could be eligible to claim.

As well as looking online as to who is in your area, there can be posters, leaflets etc in places like local churches, community centres, as well as being available from your local council.
