About role models

Scope Role Models is a programme which offers free personal, social and health education (PSHE) sessions on disability to secondary schools in London and Leeds. 89% of students felt less awkward about disability after attending.

Sessions are hosted by a Scope member of staff and a disabled role model volunteer. They consist of:

  • a talk about how attitudes and stereotyping affect the lives of disabled people
  • question and answer time with the students.

Benefits of Scope Role Models sessions

The sessions can:

  • dispel myths and change perceptions
  • promote confidence and positive attitudes
  • build a more open, welcoming learning environment
  • support disabled students and those with disabled friends or loved ones
  • add value to your school’s PSHE and Citizenship curriculum
  • enhance spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development
  • create greater diversity, inclusion and mutual respect.

Booking

We recommend booking at least 6 weeks in advance.
