SCOPE on B. B C. Breakfast

Hello I thought I would like to say saw the piece on B.B.C Breakfast this morning about how disability and the public.  It was short and sweet but the guy from SCOPE put his views across about the perceptions that the public have about disabled.  Not long enough and the young girl who was sitting next to him was fantastic giving her opinions.  We need more of this.  As a disabled person the public do not realise who and what exactly we represent.  Too much bad press.

    Thanks for this @thespiceman - you can watch again here from 1.52 onwards. Great work from James and Chloe talking about challenging attitudes towards disability and what has changed since the paralympics.

    Thank you for reply I just had to make a comment about this just came on early part of Breakfast.  It depresses me that lack of coverage of disability issues are so limited on all the networks.
