My name is Debbie and I work on the Scope helpline. Each member of the Helpline team has a subject lead role which aligns to Scope’s strategic themes. The lead role means that we have a deeper understanding and knowledge around the issue/s. The aim is to provide more in-depth information and advice to disabled people and Scope’s customers as well as sharing information and updates with Scope colleagues. My lead role is based around Benefits, Finance and Housing.

    Hi I am a young recently disabled mum and am struggling too much in reguards to my housing situation. I currently live in a two bed house with no adaptations and am finding it very hard to look after myself and my kids youngest is 7 oldest is 16. I've have been through the channels of getting an O.T and social workers to give me a letter for this and also wrote to my local mp but nothing heard from no one... I don't know where and whom to turn to

      Hi Aalysha,

      Thanks for your post. I'm sorry to hear how much you're struggling with your housing situation at the moment. Would you be able to email me at the helpline with some further information? It would help me to know which part of the country you live in, your current housing status (tenant or owner) and whether you're in receipt of any benefits. You can reach me on helpline@scope.org.uk. Please mark your email for me so that it goes to the right person and we can explore your options from there.

      Best wishes
      Debbie
