Hi everyone, Edward here from Scope's Stories Team.  :)

Have you volunteered to gain work experience? Did volunteering give you new skills and confidence in your job search? Did volunteering help you find work?

We're looking for someone to write a piece for Scope's website about volunteering to celebrate National Volunteers Week.

National Volunteers Week starts 1st June, so the deadline would be one week today!  :o  :o:o

Ideally, you'll be comfortable talking about your disability, the challenges you may have faced finding employment, and how a volunteering role has helped you. The focus of the piece would be on the benefits of volunteering and how it can be helpful.

You'll be able to provide a photograph of yourself that can be used in the article, and happy for your image and words to be on the Scope website.

If you're interested, please drop me an email at [email protected] and I'll respond as quickly as possible. 

Thank you so much!


I'm the Senior Stories Officer at Scope. Always on the lookout for powerful and interesting stories.
