offering day to day support and information, to challenging assumptions about
disability and influencing decision makers – everything we do at Scope is about
creating real and lasting change. We believe that a world where all disabled
people have the same opportunities as everyone else would be a pretty
incredible place for all of us. Together we can make it happen.
Four year old Leila
lives in Manchester with her mum, dad and three brothers. When Leila was two
she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy which affects her lower limbs.
Leila’s family felt
shocked and confused at the lack of information made available to them and
without any prior knowledge of cerebral palsy, they all felt the strain of not
knowing what her future held. But then Jo, Leila’s mum, got in touch with Scope
Response and felt immediately reassured. Scope organised a visit from her local
Regional Response Worker Ian.
"It was such a
pleasure to know that somebody would actually come to us and have the time for
us. Our Scope Response Worker was superb – he was bursting with information
which is just what we needed.” – Jo, Leila’s mum
Jo feels more
positive than ever about Leila’s future. Leila is a confident and bubbly little
girl with a strong, happy family and a very bright future ahead of her.
