Take part in research with Scope

26 June 2017

The charity Scope are looking for participants for two new research projects and have asked our mentees and mentors for help.

For the first project, they will be interviewing people on the subject of sharing information about their disability or long term health condition with their employer and with colleagues. They are interested in hearing from people who haven’t discussed their disability or condition with their employer as well as people who have.

They are recruiting people who:

  • Are aged 16-64
  • Are currently in work
  • Live in England or Wales
  • Are available to take part in a one-off interview over July or August

You can read more about the research and get in touch with Scope here.

The second project is a five year study called “Our lives, our journey”. This is Scope’s flagship research project looking at disabled people’s life opportunities. They are currently recruiting people to take part in a research interview that will happen once a year for the next 5 years.

They are looking for:

  • Disabled people who have recently started a paid job in the private sector;
  • People who acquired their disability; and.
  • Disable people aged 16-18.

Scope are now particularly looking for men to take part, to ensure they have a diverse range of experiences among participants.

All research participants will receive a £20 voucher as a thank you for taking part.
