Our partnership with The Southern Co-operative

Video describing What not to do in a convenience store – Scope and The Southern Co-operative

We’ve partnered with The Southern Co-operative to support the More Inclusive Neighbourhood theme within its Love Your Neighbourhood community engagement campaign.
We’re one of four good causes benefiting from The Southern Co-operative’s Carrier Bag Levy Fund, which has donated £40,000 to each charity to address community concerns across Southern England.
There are 2.6 million disabled people living across Southern England. Scope research shows 67% of the British public feels awkward around disabled people, and as a result they panic or worse – avoid contact altogether.
We worked with The Southern Co-operative to produce a film inspired by our End the Awkward campaign. Disabled people shared their awkward retail-based anecdotes and shared tips for staff.
