Volunteer GlaxoSmithKline

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has worked in partnership with Scope since 2008 supporting many different programmes.

Parent Guide

Aimed at giving parents with disabled children the vital information they need to support their child right from the start, GSK's sponsored Scope Parent Guide has recently been revised. A new video has also been produced – Games All Children Can Play shows how disabled and non-disabled children can play easily together.

Life Skills project

In 2010, GSK and Scope launched the Life Skills project at Beaumont College, a specialist further education college in Lancaster. The project encompassed two programmes, ‘Continence Management’ and ‘Plan, Shop, Cook!’. The Life Skills project has supported the team at Beaumont College to become leaders in their field and win national health awards, as well as enabling students to gain formal qualifications, and develop the skills needed to be as independent as possible on leaving college.

INSPIRE project

To build on the successes of their Life Skills project, GSK is currently funding the INSPIRE project. This three year project based at Beaumont College integrates sensory therapy techniques designed to support the college’s increasing number of autistic students.

In addition to GSK's support for these vital projects, many GlaxoSmithKline employees regularly volunteer at Scope services including Meldreth Manor School close to their Ware and Stevenage facilities.
