Scope has a new website

The Scope new website has gone live today. The new site proves that accessible websites don't have to be plain and boring. 

It brings the new brand to life and the photography really has impact, but still ensures the information is really clear on the page and easy to navigate with a keyboard or screen reader.

The Community functions are unchanged, we just have a new look and all the categories and discussions are still there for you to communicate on, our Community Champions, advisers and Scope staff are available to provide support and advise when you need it.

You will find the navigation from the home page of the new site has changed slightly, but we are still easy to find under the Advice and Support tab.

If anyone experiences any problems with access please drop us a line at [email protected] and we will be here to help.

    "This must not be allowed to happen"

    The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) has published a contract notice announcing its plans for a £3.1billion revamp of heath checks for Personal Independence Payments (PIP) and other benefits.

    PIP is not ESA or even UC, having one assessment for those benefits is morally wrong to treat them as ONE size fits all with that one assessment.

    I have fully stated and justifies what the DWP’s aim is here, and its not certainly for the care of the claimant or the vulnerable.

    Yes I fully agree the assessment process needs to be improved on many accounts and this is certainly not the way to do it. 

    As its been mentioned on here, and in the press now has raised grave concern and bought this into question, it’s clearly not right what this Government, the DWP, and the secretary for work & pensions is outlining regarding this proposal to change in having “ONE” assessment for all these benefits, you must also have to bear in mind too if you fail this one said assessment, your open to loose all your benefits which is quite clearly wrong, as we also know assessors can look at your claim and think I will fail this claimant because he/she may be getting to much in benefits etc, so in effect they could just be very cruel and fail and lie in the assessment to deprive the said claimant(s) etc. 

    I’ve sent them further evidence stating that this is so wrong on many accounts.

    I will not let this go as a matter of principal.

    Hello @Deb_Scope ; Please can I congratulate you all for new website. Just getting the hang of it.

    Understand the need for changes. I think that is a vast improvement.  In help and advising any one who comes on.  Wanting the support and information they need.

    Hello @Benistmonk Your on the new website in answer to your question.

    In previous incarnations the SCOPE website was different. Had the layout and design altered.   Started with lettering and much of the format.

    As you have not been on here that long.  May I advise you on anything. Happy to help and be supportive.

    Please ask any questions any of the team or community champions. I am one of the community champions.  Be glad to guide you.

    Hope that helps.

    Take care.

    Thanks Spiceman, that explains it, not having been here that long, it was probably changed when I joined. I'll have to wait for the next update to notice any difference.
