Why are there so many people with learning disabilities and serious mental health conditions that are homeless and also have problems with addiction why are so many people with learning disabilities and serious mental health conditions being exploited. Why are addiction services generally on accessible for a non disabled person and why do disability charities such as scope ignore these issues some times I think charities like scope are the biggest ablists you will ever meet as they are worried about offending the non disabled community and will ignore allot of huge social problems that are happening and allot of people are unaware of. These groups of disabled people will often get blamed but the truth is there are allot of services that are not accessible to disabled people such as someone with learning disabilities that has issues around addiction can find addiction services inaccessible which can lead to long term homelessness. Charities such as scope pretend these issues do not exist due to people blaming the person rather then looking at the bigger picture which is there are allot of services which are still inaccessible for people with disabilities and the person with a disability would be viewed as the problem rather then the service.
