Hi, I'm Graham and I'm the Co-Production Lead at Scope. This means I make sure all the work we do at Scope involves and includes the expertise of disabled people.
I'm really excited you've joined our Gaming for Good group. I identify as a disabled person and I've worked on disability rights issues for most of my career.
I can't wait to see what fundraising event the group develops for the gaming community. Thank you for being a part of this and hopefully we'll get the opportunity to meet in some of the sessions.
Co-production at Scope
At Scope, we've made the courageous commitment to embed co-production into all areas of the organisation. It's essential that disabled people inform and steer our work so that what we focus on are the issues that matter most to disabled people and their families. Co-producing our work with disabled people means we will move towards everyday equality both within our own ways of working, and what we challenge outwardly too.
Scope has adopted 4 co-production principles to help guide our work.
- Disabled people and their families are actively considered as partners from the very beginning through to the end of a project or activity.
- Decisions and responsibilities are shared between everyone who has a stake in a project or activity.
- Disabled people's lived experience and expertise is valued.
- The relevance, focus and impact of all our activity should directly benefit from doing co-production with the people we serve.
