Coronavirus: information and updates

Thank you so much for your support!

You’ve helped us reach 3.4 million disabled people over the last 12 months, which is amazing! Below are messages from some of those disabled people, or members of their family, who personally wanted to say thank you for supporting Scope and making a huge difference to their lives:

“They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, your support helped me find my village, and I’ll be grateful for that forever.” Jessica used Scope’s Navigate service when her son was diagnosed with autism. Now Jessica always has someone close by who can give her advice and share experiences.

“You’ve helped me realise I’m not alone”. Phoebe has faced restrictions her whole life and felt misunderstood and ignored. Since joining Scope’s Online Community, she feels accepted and can share her experiences with people who understand.

“Thanks to you, I’ve overcome discrimination and prejudice in the workplace.” Charles faced barrier after barrier when trying to find work, but with advise from Scope’s employment services, he’s in a job he loves and is living an independent life.

“You helped me to believe in myself again and gave me the courage to assert myself.” Maria faced discrimination in the workplace and hadn’t worked for 10 months. Scope’s employment services supported her in finding a job and she now has the confidence to ask for what she needs.

“You’ve helped fix Benji’s broken sleep. You’ve been amazing. We didn’t know human beings like you even existed”. The restless nights were taking their toll on Jairo and his family. With the support of Scope’s Navigate service, they were able to find the bedtime routine that suited Benji and now he is sleeping and feeling so much better.

“I can’t thank you enough, you’ve given me my confidence back and now I’m applying for jobs that I wouldn’t have thought I could apply for before”. Emilia felt discriminated against when she was looking for work after graduating from university. But with Scope’s Support to Work programme her confidence grew and now she’s studying towards her master’s degree.
