Communications News: Scope asks public how to achieve its 'vision of equality'

Scope has launched an online consultation inviting suggestions to help it achieve its "vision of equality" for disabled people.

On its website, under the headline "Help shape the future of Scope", the charity asks people to share their knowledge of the main barriers preventing disabled people from achieving equality, recommend how they can be removed, and suggest ways that Scope can help to create a more equal society.

Sue Freeth, assistant director of community services, said the charity would use the public's ideas and opinions alongside its own to inform its strategic direction for the next five years.

"We're coming towards the end of a five-year plan, so we're refreshing our strategy work for the next one," she said. "We want to be public and transparent about that process."

She added that Scope has employed two independent disabled consultants to facilitate focus groups and to help develop its thinking in this area.

It will use different media to engage with more people in the near future, and the new plans should come into effect by the beginning of next year.
