Representatives from across the Scope organisation along with Trustees, volunteers, supporters and staff will be attending Downing Street to celebrate the important role that Scope plays in driving changes to improve the lives of disabled people and to thank those who do so much to make their work a success.
We have been very privileged to help support some of Scope’s clients in our classes and be involved with some of the amazing carers/support workers assisting them and see first hand the importance of what they do.
In October 2014 some of you may recall Kris our founder and instructor was featured as a storyteller for Scope in their blog spot. In this blog he explained about Wheely Good Fitness and the need for a more modern approach to disability and fitness. Recently he also wrote a short blog for Scope on ‘Five wheelchair exercises you can try at home’ showing 5 simple but important stretches for wheelchair uses to do and how to progress them into a small aerobic exercise.
Through his work and involvement with Scope clients and efforts towards changing perceptions of disability, Scope nominated Kris to attend this special event. In addition one of our clients Elliot Evans has also been nominated to attend this event for his own contributions as a storyteller for Scope.
Scope exists to make this country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. They provide information and advice to more than a quarter of a million disabled people and their families every year, and raise awareness of the issues that matter.
