Are you 10-18 years old? Want to change something in your community?

Scope is offering the opportunity for young disabled people (aged 10-18 years old) to learn campaigning skills so that their voices may be heard in their communities. To achieve this, the Community Campaigns Team will be holding training sessions in London in May and June.

These events will give you the chance to learn new campaign skills and tools, and to hear from other people who have been able to make life better for disabled people and others in their community.

The events will be held from 10.30 – 3.30 on the following dates:

  • Saturday 10 May
  • Saturday 24 May
  • Saturday 7 June

At Scope, 6 Market Road, London, N7 9PW.

If you’re a young disabled person aged 10 to 18 and you want to change people’s attitudes towards disability and improve the way disabled people can get involved in the life of your community, please come along.

The events are free to attend and we will provide you with lunch and cover the cost of your transport.

These first sessions will be held in London but we will be delivering a similar programme later in the year in other parts of the country.
To find out more about how you can take part and book your place please email YourCampaigns@Scope.org.uk or phone Rosemary Frazer, on 0207 619 7718.

  1. My son Jordan attended Saturday. It is brilliant that scope is teaching him to use his voice. His voice is equal and his opinions matter. His campaign is wheelchair access. Was very proud of him. Sad as more children did not attend. My son is the future generation of wheelchair users. I feel as a parent however a child communicates their opinions matter. As Jordan once said to me ” You don’t know how I feel. You don’t understand. ” All I could do was agree. With these courses if my son’s voice can make a difference for someone else who is struggling what a brilliant achievement this would be. Jordan said the course was good. He liked learning how to campaign and making new friends.

    Thank you from us both.
