Keep Us Close campaign update

After almost a month, our Keep Us Close families campaign is continuing to go from strength to strength. Scope supporters have been busy emailing their MPs, calling on them to ensure that disabled children and their families have better local support.

Hundreds of emails have been sent, adding to the thousands of campaign postcards and petitions that have been sent from our shops in England and Wales. Our customers have been so keen to support the campaign that many shops ran out of campaign postcards!

Six MPs have visited their local Scope shops to collect the postcards and hear about the importance of the campaign. The Labour Shadow Minister for Children and Families has supported Keep Us Close, as well as other organisations, including Save the Children and the Family and Parenting Institute.

Online, our new Keep Us Close animation is still very popular, and the campaign has been a hot topic on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

The campaigns team is busy planning the next stage of the campaign, so look out for how you can get involved next month.

In the meantime, please don’t forget to email your MP, and tell all your friends about this essential campaign for disabled children and their families.
