Scope is proud to be a member-based organisation. Our members are a dedicated group of people who come from all walks of life. They share a common desire to help support and empower people with a disability.

Our Members

Our members play a vital role in helping us achieve our mission to enable each person we support to live as an empowered and equal citizen. Our members come from all sorts of backgrounds. As advocates of Scope, they give us a powerful voice in the disability sector, helping us to drive change and speak up for people with a disability in the community.

Most of all, our members are passionate about making a difference in the lives of people with a disability. We appreciate their ongoing support of our organisation.
