    have you considered registering with different agencies for work? :?

    I work from home but only because I couldn't go back to work after my maternity leave ended as the childcare costs made it not worth working. My boss kindly let me still work part time and do the work from home. I do all the typing I would have done in the office so its pretty much straightforward as they supplied me with the equipment and I had already had the PC. Not sure what requirements you need to actually start working from home as it would depend on the nature of the work I suppose. I'd love to eventually become self-employed and do other people's typing etc like on a holiday cover basis or whatever. Something I would have to look into as not sure what would be required for that but maybe some day.

    Be careful, there are lots of "scam" companies who say you will earn money working from home, but it is a just a con to get money out of you.

    Dont pay ANY money up front (admin fee, registration fee or whatever). You will never get it back, or any work.

    What guill said.

    I don't think there are many jobs where you immediately work from home and never go in. Most jobs, you work in the office, then if your circumstances change or theirs do, or your role changes, you may be allowed to work from home.

    Sorry to take this off topic - but I know someone who is blind and she is in her eighties. Well she is absolutely incredible - so independent, and still goes to the shopping centre on the bus - gets all her shopping, and buses it back home! Last week we went over to visit her and there she was MOWING THE LAWN! She lost her sight 20yrs ago and still lives in the same house so that obviously helps her - but I just admire her so much as obviously hasnt stopped her from getting on with her life as much as she can.

    Well done to your uncle btw - keeping independent as well by the sounds of it

    Thanks! Just got a bit lucky with my work though doubt it will last forever. Did look at the work at home schemes but like you I am a bit dubious about most of them.

    Hope you get something soon and it all works out for you

    i work for 7 different companies all from home.
    if i have to leave the house i get grumpy.
    save a fortune on driving costs
    wear what i like
    wake up when i like
    and the best bit is i dont have to talk to anyone at the office

    Someone mentioned Callcatcherz.co.uk earlier in the thread and I believe they are taking on more agents according to the Contact Centre Focus magazine, I've taken a look at the site and emailed for more info wish me luck
