Are there any plans for Scope to develop local activities for disabled people? In the early years after the name change I was heavily involved in what was then called Partnership Committees and Executive Working Groups. I was on both groups for the South West region. I found that this involvement really helped me overcome my personal health difficulties and my barriers to a useful purpose in life. I am finding now that since the Government has cut so much funding to the voluntary sector both Scope and Shine, who work with people with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus are struggling to actually meet the needs of their service users due to the cuts in service provision and the over reliance on internet based acivities, which I find does not help my emotional and psychological welfare as much as getting out and meeting others does. Trouble is I am finding I am knocking against brick walls when I put this to the relevant charities. These are not the only charities affected by the way. Does anyone else feel affected in the same way?
