At Scope, we support businesses to become more inclusive of disabled people. We work with companies to make their jobs, products, and services more inclusive and accessible.
Partnering with us demonstrates your commitment to being more inclusive. It also helps us achieve our vision of a society where all disabled people enjoy equality and fairness.
Our partnerships offer
Through our partnerships we help companies to improve disability inclusion in these areas:
- digital accessibility
- internal workplace policies
- external business practices
We do this by offering a range of corporate services.
Inclusive workplace services
We know disabled people are almost twice as likely to be unemployed as non-disabled people. Labour force survey.
That’s why we offer a range of services to suit businesses of all sizes. Helping them to become more confident about disability in the workplace.
Workplace disability inclusion
Our Disability Employment Experts work with you to understand your organisation’s needs. This can help us find and review any internal barriers that stop you from hiring disabled talent. These barriers may be cultural or based in workplace attitudes and internal policy.
We provide a tailored package of activities that include:
- a company review
- toolkits and resources
- interactive workshop sessions
- opportunity to advertise roles through our jobs board
Interactive workshops and training

Research and insight
We offer a range of standalone services to complement our corporate programmes.
Scope has a research panel of over 2000 members with lived experience of disability. This includes disabled people and parents of disabled children. Research panel members are available for both qualitative and quantitative research.
- focus groups
- one-to-one interviews
- user experience sessions and product testing
- surveys and quick polls
We run and manage group sessions, including consent and rewards for participants.
We support companies to better reach the 16 million disabled people in the UK. We know websites and online services are not always designed to meet disabled customers’ needs.
We can help you improve your accessibility with the following support.
Digital accessibility audits
Your digital accessibility journey starts with an accessibility audit. This can be your most visited web pages, for example, or your core customer journeys.
We carry out manual testing. This will identify user experience issues that are likely to affect disabled users. We then report on how your digital services perform against global accessibility standards. As a result, you can make sure your website is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
