Scope is a national disability charity that campaigns to challenge and change negative attitudes about disability and provides direct services. The organisation was founded in 1952 by a group of parents and social workers who wanted to ensure that their disabled children had the right to a decent education. When founded Scope, then known as the Spastic Society, focussed on Cerebral Palsy. Today Scope is a "pan-disability" charity that represents all conditions and impairment.
In February 2007, Neil Finn played a charity show for Scope, England's largest organization for people living with cerebral palsy. The concert was held at Stowe School in Wales, and also featured Aussie rocker, Jimmy Barnes. The event was followed by a celebrity auction featuring items donated by Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue, Elton John, and Australian cricketer, Shane Warne.
