Unlike a passport, you don't need someone in a special list of professions...

The criteria is as follows:

"The person signing the form and photo must:

- hold a valid GB photocard driving licence
- be resident in the UK
- know you personally (for 2+ years)
- not be a relative
- not be living at the same address as you".



Do you have any friends who hold a driving licence? Yes? Good. There's your countersignatory.

Do any of your relatives have friends you could ask? Even if they don't know you well they'd be aware you exist.....

As someone else said your old GP or any old teachers could help.

I'd definitely write a note with it to explain

That's very unfortunate that you lost your friends by being housebound. I really feel for you there.
