Life costs more if you’re disabled – £550 extra a month on average. It could be anything from transport to get out and about, to an adapted knife and fork so you can eat. These costs are holding too many people back from living their lives. This has to change. And it starts with getting the word out.
Let’s get people talking about the extra £550 average costs disabled people face each month by doing fun, creative 550-themed things to raise awareness. Maybe it’s making a big 550 sign with friends, decorating a t-shirt, or, like Joe, playing a sport for 5 minutes 50, whatever you like with 550.
Take a picture or video and share it on Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #550Challenge – To find out more visit www.scope.org.uk/550-challenge
