Support to Work (Scope)

Support to Work is an online and telephone support programme for disabled people in England and Wales who are applying for jobs.

What you will get

Dedicated employment advisers: You will get help from one of our specialist employment advisers with:

  • employability skills like time management and confidence
  • writing your CV
  • preparing for interviews.

We will advise you on many aspects of applying for a job. But we won’t write a job application for you, talk to employers on your behalf, or find you work experience.

12-week action plan

Your employment adviser will work with you to create a confidential, personally tailored 12-week action plan. Your plan might include things like:

  • reading job seekers' advice
  • writing a CV or cover letter from a template research for an interview.

We’ll keep your plan online, so you’ll need access to the internet. Your adviser will be on hand to help you throughout the 12 weeks. At the end of the 12 weeks your time with the adviser will be up, but you'll still have access to your plan and all its resources online.

Online and telephone support

Support to Work is an online and telephone service, not a face-to-face service, which may not be right for everyone. You will not meet your adviser in person.

Contact us at supporttowork@scope.org.uk or on 0300 222 5742 if you want to discuss whether Support to Work is right for you.

The online service is delivered via your own personal online portal.

Work With Me campaign

The Support to Work service is part of our Work With Me campaign supported by Virgin Media to raise awareness of and tackle the barriers disabled people face finding and keeping a job.
