Urgent Request from Scope
Something really important has come up.
It’s about social care, the vital support many disabled people need to get up, dressed, out of the house and live independently. Angela explains well how important it is: "I'm 28, I'm disabled but I want to enjoy life the way any other young woman can. Thanks to social care I have two volunteer jobs, I can go shopping, see my friends."
But more than 100,000 disabled people like Angela could be denied care altogether. Will you speak out right now for social care?
Here’s why it’s urgent.
MPs are about to debate the Care Bill, a once-in-a-generation law that will decide the future of social care. They are meant to represent us, so will you ask your MP to speak out about disabled people being denied care?
Now is a big chance.
All you need to do is tell us why you feel it’s important everyone who needs care can get it. As simple as that. We’ll deliver your message to your MP on a big speech bubble so they hear your voice.
If you get care, know someone who does or simply believe that everyone should have freedom and dignity – please speak out about social care.
Time is running out, so please fill out your speech bubble and submit it by this Monday 9 December. We’ll print them and make sure they get to MPs in time for the Care Bill debate on 16 December.
Thank you so much
