Cost of Living for adults with CP

I had feed up with people who ask me to give money to parents who have Cp children. I am 56 with Cp. I am not coping well with the price of Gad and Electricity, but there is no help for me. I worked for Scope for 15 years and they retired me 19 years ago.

    Welcome to the community @ruthcourt1 :) It's good to hear from you! 

    I'm sorry to hear that you're not coping well due to the cost of living crisis. It's a worrying time for many people, so you're not alone in feeling the way you do. 

    Would you like to tell us a bit more about what you're struggling with, and what support you already receive? 

    If you feel you could benefit from some advice on managing your energy bills, you might want to get in touch with our Disability Energy Support service

    Gas and electric prices are horrible at the moment and most of us are struggling I think :( 
    Who's asking you to donate to parents with children who has CP? I don't think anyone would want you to donate if you can't afford to <3

    I was having emails from Scope. I don't know their names but I replied saying I had Cp myself

    Hi @Ruthcourt1
    How are you today? I have CP too and work for Scope. Would you like the emails to be stopped?
