We have plenty of Children in Need but ‘Children in Need’ has a 90M surplus….

As with Scope (previously the Spastics Society) the difficulty seems to be near total failure to move into a USER-led charity concept. This results in most of the folk I know who have cerebral palsy ever seeing a penny of support but everyone assuming that we/they do.
Scope gave me the bum’s rush numerous times- they only employ ‘supercrips’ and certainly don’t want folk who have the cognitive impairments as well as the physical issues because they have to undo all the damage they did for 50 years creating the idea that if you have spastic CP your brain is mush…..

And as ever….children in need grow to be adults in need…..but there is Workfare for that!
