Two million

That’s how many people we plan to reach by 2022. And you will help us do it. With your support we’re launching digital services across England and Wales for disabled people and their families.

We’re also providing local support in key areas across the country which includes:

  • Sleep: enabling disabled children and parents to get a good night’s rest.
  • Parent support: providing practical information and support networks for families of disabled children.
  • Kickstart: getting disabled young people’s careers off to the best start.

Change is coming

This summer, 12 young disabled people went away for a week to Loughbourgh. But they weren’t on holiday – far from it. They were attending a ‘bootcamp’ for the next generation of disabled campaigners. It’s all part of our 2018 Scope for Change programme, which is made possible by your gifts.

Now they’re putting their new skills into action, by developing campaigns in their local communities that will make change happen. Stay tuned for news of the results!

Easing the strain

Did you know that seven in ten parents of disabled children have experienced mental health problems, like anxiety or depression? But your support is helping improve
their wellbeing.

Thanks to you, we’re launching a new service to support parents and carers
when a child has been diagnosed as being disabled.

At a time when everything can seem overwhelming and even frightening, you will help them cope. Thank you.

Scope exists to make this country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. Until then, we'll be here.
