Scope

Scope is a charity that exists to make this country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else.

It provides support, information and advice to more than 250,000 disabled people and their families every year, raising awareness of the issues that matter.

GSK has been working with Scope since 2009 supporting many different projects and is currently funding the Kickstart employment service.
