Eight reasons we need your support today

This Christmas alone, over 4,000 people will turn to our helpline for support and advice.

Your support will mean we can be there to offer support and advice to disabled people and their families.

45 percent of working age disabled people are chronically lonely, saying they always or often feel lonely.

Over half of working age disabled people who have felt lonely in the past year said they experienced depression and anxiety; and half experienced stress.

A shocking 85 percent of young disabled adults feel lonely.

Our vital services provide emotional support, information and advice to disabled people and their families when they feel completely alone. 

Life costs more if you’re disabled.

These costs add up to £550 a month. Disabled people say this makes it harder to socialise and see friends and family.

Underfunding in the social care system makes it harder for many disabled people to get basic support to live the lives they choose. 

Our Helpline and online community provide free, independent and impartial information and support on issues that matter to disabled people and their families.

The essential support we provide helps families to stick together through the tough times.

Eight out of ten parents with disabled children feel incredibly stressed and anxious through not getting the help and support they need.

Parents tell us all the time that they came to Scope because there was no one else they could turn to.

Our Sleep Solutions services provide practical support so the whole family can get a good night’s sleep.
