    Hey There Pippa_Scope and Ami2301 for your lovely warm Welcome. It’s kinda scary just starting out in a New Group but I really wanted to join Scope as I wanted to be able to chat with People who aren’t judgmental about your Disabilities and they actually see you first and not your Disability because that isn’t what defines me as a Person. Xxx

    I was absolutely petrified when I first joined the community and now, thanks to Scope, I have grown in confidence and despite some of the situations that are discussed, it is a really positive place to be 🙂
