Scope Global has launched a new service – the Disability Inclusion Practice – to break down stereotypes and challenge cultural attitudes about what people with disabilities are capable of achieving.
Our vision is for people with disabilities to be able to positively change their world by participating in all aspects of society. Through the Disability Inclusion Practice, we work alongside people with disabilities and their member organisations to reduce societal barriers and enhance participation for all.
Our approach is based on the Inclusion Track model (below, click for large image). We developed this internationally recognised model through our long-standing engagement with people with disabilities in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. This model is founded on a core belief that it is everyone’s responsibility to reduce barriers to equal participation.
Our approach aligns with the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disability, the Sustainable Development Goals and Australian Government disability inclusion strategies.
According to Vojtech Hledik, United Nations Volunteers, “Scope Global’s work has been truly inspirational to the United Nations Volunteers. We have benefited from their vast experience and dedication. Scope Global demonstrates in its work the core principal of sustainable development: to leave no one behind.”
