Scope's Helpline

Scope is a charity that exists to make this country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. Until then, we’ll be here. 

We provide free, independent and impartial information and support on issues that matter to disabled people and their families.

Our information officers can answer questions and talk you through a wide range of topics connected with disability, including:

  • benefits

  • finance

  • social care

  • work

  • equipment and assistive technology

  • housing and home adaptations

We can also put you in touch with local providers of information and support and other Scope services in your area.
