At Scope we have a vision of a world where disabled people are equal and able to live independent lives.
Changing attitudes is a significant part of securing that vision. We know that two- thirds of people feel awkward around disabled people. The problem is even more prominent amongst younger people in Britain.
These negative attitudes can have a direct impact on a disabled person’s chances of making friends, getting a job or securing the services they need. When people don’t know a disabled person they can all too often believe lazy, offensive and incorrect stereotypes.
That’s why we’re passionate about changing public attitudes. But this is just one way we work to make the world a better place for disabled people.
