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.
