Reasons to support Scope

The money you raise:

  • means we can be there to offer support and advice to disabled people and their families.
  • could help our helpline continue to support thousands of people every year. Last year, we receied over 28,000 enquiries and demand is higher than ever.
  • could help us to bring parents of disabled children together through our online community or local befriending services so they can support each other during stressful and anxious times.

I am so pleased to have been able to take part in the run and support your charity. Thank you so much. The cup of tea and the massage were particularly necessary and appreciated!
