Meet Val

Val is 75 years young and has been involved with Scope for more than 30 years in supported employment, accommodation and Scope Lifestyle Options. And she isn’t about to slow down now.

Val has a great outlook on life and puts 100% in to everything she does. In a successful career spanning more than 20 years, working at one of Scope’s packaging and assembly sites, Val is now enjoying a retirement filled with errands, craft and supporting her local community through volunteering.

Val spends most of her days at a Scope Lifestyle Options site. She is passionate about art and is heavily involved with the art and craft program at the Lifestyle Centre she attends. Val is part of a sewing group that regularly meets to create beautiful pieces to sell to their local community. Funds raised from the sale of these products go towards sponsoring a child in India.

After a busy day, Val returns her home at a Scope supported accommodation site. Here she can relax and feel safe in the knowledge that, if she needs it, support is on hand.

Val is an inspiring example of someone who takes hold of every opportunity to make the most out of life. Quite simply, she doesn’t let anything stop her.
