Scope attacked for focusing on care

Cerebral palsy charity Scope has been criticised for failing to
support capacity building among disabled people.

Lorraine Gradwell, chief executive of social enterprise
Breakthrough UK, said the charity focused too much on raising money
for care rather than supporting disabled people to help themselves.

Her criticism follows the launch of Scope’s new anti-discrimination
campaign. The home secretary, David Blunkett (left), was one of the
first signatories. Time To Get Equal, which also has the backing of
Nelson Mandela, aims to end discrimination and prejudice against
the UK’s 10 million disabled people.
