Community Engagement Programme

Scope's Community Engagement programme empowers local people to take action and create change in their local communities.

The programme is for:

  • disabled people aged 18 and over
  • families, parents and unpaid carers of disabled children


The Community Engagement Programme is currently running in these regions.

  • North East
  • North West
  • West Midlands and North Wales
  • East Anglia
  • South West and South Wales

How it works

Groups of local people meet once a month at an informal gathering where they can meet new people and find out about a range of planned activities. Each area has a programme of planned activities and some campaigns designed and developed by local people.

Examples of planned local activities and campaigns include:

  • improving beach access
  • sleep workshops for parents
  • disability awareness training for local retailers
  • art workshops
  • accessible allotments.

Planned projects may vary depending on your location
