Starting in 1948 as the Spastic Children's Society of Victoria, today Scope's services include areas such as therapy and psychology, home care and respite, day and lifestyles activities and employment services.
Historically, people with a disability have had little say as to the organisation that services them. This environment is changing. Individualised funding is now empowering clients to make choices and Scope seeks to be the preferred provider. To achieve this Scope aims to deliver quality and responsive services for people with a disability.
At Scope, we see people with a disability simply just as people. Scope seeks to understand who you are, to find out what matters most to you and support you to achieve it. We provide ‘Scope For People With A Disability’ to live the lives that they choose. Scope has over 90 facilities across the state of Victoria. Through our world-class research, services, education, communication resources and advocacy, Scope is continually identifying better opportunities to support each person with a disability to:
- Make decisions about their own life
- Get the right job, not just any job
- Choose where and who they live with
- Enjoy full participation in their community of choice
- Live out their equal rights
