I was told today that I am unable to get direct payments as I receive ESA and DLA. Is this correct information. Scope should have someone employed in their organisation to support people with cerebral palsy and know exactly what benefits/direct payments are available. Also, have an advocacy service to voice people who have to fight for support in their lives. Scope was brilliant in the past supporting people who have cerebral palsy in my area. I used to have a welfare officer that visited me in my home and she would work with me to find solutions.
