SCOPE...“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

Have had a lovely conversation with a gentleman from SCOPE today. Sadly, i'm not in a position at the moment to commit each month financially to this wonderful cause.However,  he did agree that it would be ok for me to put something on the blog. True to my word ,here it is. My gift to you...awareness,pass it on.
 “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

SCOPE, what are they all their own words, this is what they do

'... We're all about changing society for the better, so that disabled people and their families can have the same opportunities as everyone else.
We work with disabled people and their families at every stage of their lives. We offer practical support – from information services to education and everyday care.
We challenge assumptions about disability, we influence decision makers and we show what can be possible.
Everything we do is about creating real and lasting positive change in individual lives and in the world around us. We believe that together we can create a better society.'

Now,as professional carers,you and I all know just how close to home the reality of all these families go through on a daily basis.
I freely admit that it wasn't until I became a carer in the community that I realised the huge scale of help and support required.Too often we acknowledge difficulties but tend to think that it is happening somewhere else.

So, lets stop this 'not in my backyard' approach and do what we can to help.

When it comes to donations it is a personal choice and Im sure that if we were in a healthy financial position many charities would benefit.

Choosing your charity is also a very personal choice and that is respected.

On this occasion, I would just like for you to get familiar with SCOPE.There are many ways you can help, and there is a fantastic support network in place.
