    Hi Emma,

    Thanks for your message. Our vision and purpose as an organisation relates to all disabled people and their families. We want to create a world where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else.

    We have a very wide range of services, activities and information on offer to all disabled people. However, our history is based around cerebral palsy and we retain a particular specialism in this area.

    If you'd like to know more, take a look at our "support and information" pages: http://www.scope.org.uk/support

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Hi Emma,

    Just to add to what Alex said, Scope has a number of dedicated staff working across the organisation. Here at the helpline we are able to give advice and information on a range of disability related issues. My own specialism is Benefits, Finance and Housing but we answer a wide range of queries every day including Employment, Social Care, Independent Living and so on. The list is not exhaustive and if we don't know the answer straight away, we will research it and find out.

    Best wishes
    Debbie
