Team Scope runner 2018
I am so glad I picked Scope. I got fantastic emails and calls once I had signed up full of encouragement and thanks. I had an overall fantastic experience in my first ever charity fundraising event.
The difference you can make
By signing up to the Manchester Marathon with Scope, you'll be raising vital funds to help us end inequality for disabled people.
We know that nearly half of disabled people feel excluded from society. Scope works tirelessly to campaign for change so that disabled people and their families can enjoy equality and fairness in their everyday lives.
£65 could pay for one week of support for a disabled person to access our Starting Line service; a pre-employment training programme for disabled people at the start of the journey into work.
£280 could enable a disabled volunteer to inspire 40 school students to be positive about disability at a Role Models session.
£450 could cover the cost of 50 phone calls to the Scope Helpline, providing free, independent and impartial advice and support on issues that matter to disabled people and their families.
Caller to the Scope Helpline
I can honestly say that I don’t think I could have coped had it not been for the Helpline. They have given me so much time and support through all my difficulties and battles.
