This service 

We offer support for disabled teenagers (13 to18) to get involved in their community and participate in a local group or club. With the end result of you being able to attend independently. We can support you to become more involved in activities you enjoy such as:  

  • Guides or scouts 
  • Air or army cadets  
  • Sports groups  
  • Going to the gym  
  • Art, drama or music

Our support will offer much more than just joining a club. We also aim to help develop confidence, independence gain new skills and meet new friends. At Scope we never set limits on a child’s potential.  

Is it for you

We support teenagers with a disability, impairment or special needs. This includes Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), Cerebral Palsy and learning difficulties. Our aim is to provide support to those who do not currently receive any local authority short breaks services.   

Getting started

We will talk to you and your family and anyone else important in your life that is important to you. We will find out what’s important to you and how you like to be supported as well as answer any questions you might have. Together, we’ll develop your own one page profile and determine what clubs or activities you may enjoy and like to try.  

Your volunteer

We will find you a volunteer who shares your interests and who will get on with you and your family. The volunteer will then support you to access your chosen club or activity supporting families with disabled children for 60 years, we know just how much selecting friendly and caring staff.
