Unfold-logo (3)This is an article from Unfold magazine

Have you seen our new Disability Gamechanger campaign? With your steadfast support, you’re a big part of it. And you can help make it a success.

Disability equality has been in the background for far too long.

Over the years, courageous people have fought to make our society more equal. And you are one of them. By supporting Scope, you have shown that you’re a Disability Gamechanger.

But unlike other fights for equality, disability equality has been in the background for far too long.

If we all stand together we can achieve equality and fairness. Here’s how…

Closing the digital divide

With you alongside us, our campaign will urge the technology industry to include disabled people in the next wave of digital innovation, so that everyone can access the benefits of new technology.

Transforming social care 

Thanks to you, our campaign will demand reforms to the social care system, so that it better enables disabled people to have an independent and integrated life.

Challenging negative attitudes

“People’s attitudes, that’s the main barrier,” says Sheila. With your support, our
campaign will demand that the Government uses the new disability strategy group to
focus on improving attitudes towards disabled people.

Providing access to work

Many disabled people struggle to get into the workplace and thrive there. Through our
campaign, you will help us ensure that all disabled people can access specialist employment support.

Improving public transport

“I have to plan my journey before I go anywhere,” says Steph. Disabled people face many barriers on public transport, from inaccessibility to negative attitudes. Together, we’ll press for reforms to public transport, so disabled people are treated equally.

You’re leading the way

We’re calling on everyone to join  you in becoming a Disability Gamechanger. Please share our campaign with your friends and family.

Thank you so much for your support. 

Scope exists to make this country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. Until then, we'll be here.
