We are recruiting 100 people willing to take part in a face to face in-depth interview once a year, over the next five years. You will need to allow two hours each year to take part. Your interview will take place at a time, location and using a communication channel that suits your needs. You will receive a £20 gift voucher for participating each year.
We want to speak to more disabled people like you, to better understand your experiences and how they evolve over time. Your voices will be at the heart of our work and be used to develop our policy recommendations. Based on this we will campaign and influence Government to improve life opportunities and create positive social change for disabled people.
No experience of taking part in interviews before is necessary. Your interview will be with a specialist Scope social researcher who will visit you at a location of your choice. Before we meet for your interview we will establish a plan together so the interview is convenient and accessible for your needs. We’d especially like to encourage disabled people and parents of disabled children from a range of different backgrounds to get involved. Our social researchers will build a dedicated research relationship with you and guide you through each interview. This way we can best understand your situation and how that changes over time.
Your responses will be managed in confidence. You will be asked for your permission for the interview to be recorded.
You will also be able to choose to allow us to use your name, story and photo in policy publications, blogs, or campaigns. You can give your feedback anonymously if you prefer. All your contact information will be securely stored and will not be used for sales or seeking donations.
At any given time Scope is running a number of different research projects working with disabled people and their families, so there are lots of ways to get involved. Other opportunities to participate in research might involve taking part in a Scope opinion poll, or to test out some ideas for new Scope services, or you might like to feedback on future campaigns like our recent ‘End the Awkward’ campaign.
Let us know if you’re interested in being contacted about participating in future Scope research.
