Creating change in your local community

You will choose the challenges you want to take on in your local community. Scope will support you with bringing about change.

Get together with other like-minded people and make your local community better.

This could include:

  • campaigning for disability rights
  • making local events and venues more accessible
  • starting a disability podcast, sharing insight and experiences

Group meetings

You and the group you are working with will initially meet every month. We will work with your group on the best format for these meetings.

Group meetings are where you design projects and act on issues that matter the most. Working as a team to achieve your goals.

You can use these gatherings to:

  • invite guest speakers
  • build your own projects
  • share your progress
  • solve problems

They are also a great way to meet new people, make friends, and widen your social networks.

Training and skills development

We will listen to where you want to develop your knowledge and skills to make positive change. Where possible we will connect you to training opportunities.
