    Whether someone’s disabled or not, if you’re invited back for 'coffee' you're probably not going to get much sleep. So let’s hope you’ve got your best undies on.

    C is for 'Coffee' is part of Scope’s A-Z of sex and disability.

    About the campaign:
    Scope research shows that just 5% of non-people have ever asked out, or been on a date with, a disabled person. So this October, we're celebrating dark, drawn-in nights and long lie-ins under the covers with our vibrant and racy, illustrated A to Z of sex and disability.
    http://www.scope.org.uk/a-z

    The A-Z is the lastest offering from Scope's #EndTheAwkward campaign which aims to change attitudes to disability by shining a light-hearted spotlight on the awkwardness people feel around disability. Scope hopes the campaign will help people feel comfortable when talking to – or dating – a disabled person.

  • http://www.scope.org.uk/ABW2013 Anti-Bullying Week 2013, 18-22 November calls on children and young people to take the lead in creating a future without bullying -- using new technology to promote positive communication rather than being held back by cyber bullying.

    Bullying is something that many of Scope's Trendsetters, a group of disabled young people, say they've experienced.

    One Trendsetter wanted to use technology to share her experience of being bullied. She wanted to send out a positive message about stopping bullying by creating this short film. Her message is: "If you are being bullied, or know someone who is, tell someone."

    If you've experienced bullying and would like details of organisations that can help, please visit:

  • From Rain Man to the life of the scientist Stephen Hawkins, films centred around a disabled character have had big success at the box office. And won awards for their stars. But these stars aren't actually disabled. And now disability campaigners say these roles should be offered to disabled actors. In the case of one new movie - Me Before You - they object to the plot as well.

  • Meet two Dubai residents relying on RTA disability access initiative. The RTA and Dubai Municipality have embarked on a series of initiatives aimed at turning Dubai into a disability friendly city. From detailed guidelines on facilities and access, that have to be provided for people with disabilities, to Urban design considerations including obstructions, signage, street furniture, pathways, curb ramps, pedestrian crossing and parking, the City of Dubai is well on its way to achieving its goal of 100% walkability by 2020.See more at: http://gulfnews.com/gntv

  • If you are a wheelchair user who loves the outdoors, don't let a little mud, sand or snow stop you from getting there. The Renegade All Terrain Wheelchair has a multi-gear, push-bar system inspired by mountain bike technology, so you can go off the beaten path with relative ease. Your hands never touch wet wheels and the lower gears provide you with the extra torque when you really need it. Because where you want to go, there are no ramps.

  • November 2015 marks the twentieth anniversary since the Disability Discrimination Act became law in Britain. The law improved the lives of many disabled people and put anti-discrimination law on the statute book for disabled people.

    However, it was the civil rights campaigners and activists who fought tirelessly to change the law that made this a remarkable moment in disability history.

    We are marking this anniversary with a whole host of content on our website. Visit http://goo.gl/dpKjND to find out more.
