Virgin Media partnership
Scope and Virgin Media are working together with the ambition to support 1 million disabled people with the confidence and skills, to get into and stay in work by the end of 2020.
Our research reveals that disabled people are more than twice as likely to be unemployed than non-disabled people. This is known as the disability employment gap.
Through our partnership with Virgin Media we are tackling this employment gap in two ways.
Support to Work
In 2017, we launched Support to Work, our flagship digital employment support service. Support to Work offers personalised, online and telephone support for disabled people, who are looking for work.

We are also working with Virgin Media to create equality in the workplace. #WorkWithMe launched as an awareness campaign, highlighting the barriers disabled people face in the workplace.
Our #WorkWithMe pledge calls for organisations to come together, demonstrating their commitment to thinking and acting differently about disability in their organisation.
Virgin Media’s employees also support our partnership through fundraising, skill swaps, volunteering and donations.
