Why Scope?

People are at the heart of everything we do

No matter what your hopes, goals and dreams are, we’re here with you every step of the way.

Because when you truly see the person, anything is possible.

When Alana and her partner found out their baby girl had Down Syndrome, they had mixed emotions and did not know what challenges they would face.

Karen, their speech pathologist was more than a therapist to the family. She was there as emotional support and inspiration.

We’re one of Australia’s largest disability services providers

The Scope Approach

See the Person, Do it Together, Do it Right, and Do it Better

One of the fundamental differences between Scope and other disability service providers is the ‘Scope Approach’.

The Scope Approach is the set of values that guides our organisation. Our employees embrace the Scope Approach and have done so since 2007.

These four principles represent our commitment to provide outstanding support services to people with a disability and their families.
