Not enough people know or interact with disabled people. Because of that, when they do, they often don't know what to do. They panic, or worse, just avoid situations for fear of doing the wrong thing. Scope want to end that.
In this film, introduced by Actor Warwick Davis, Scope re-enacts real life awkward moments that disabled people have experienced when out socialising, dating or at work. The film also features: Bad Education star Jack Binstead; actor and presenter Mik Scarlet; Ronnie Murray - the head chef of London's HIX restauran; and Nic Hamilton, racing driver and brother of Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton, and many others.
Help us #EndtheAwkward and share these awkward moments with friends.
About End The Awkward:
A big part of the campaign is encouraging people sharing their awkward moments. We hope this video will get people thinking differently about disability – but also prompt people to share their stories and get involved at our Awkward hub. We’ll be publishing awkward stories regularly through the campaign too.http://www.scope.org.uk/awk...
Scope exists to make this country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. Until then, we'll be here. We provide support, information and advice to more than a quarter of a million disabled people and their families every year. We raise awareness of the issues that matter. And with your support, we'll keep driving change across society until this country is great for everyone.
