Disability Inclusion Practice

Our vision is for people with disabilities to be able to positively change their world.

About Us

Our Disability Inclusion Practice is powered by Scope Global’s experience in working with people with disabilities throughout Australia and the Asia Pacific region. We put people with disabilities at the core of this practice engaging them as our ‘experts’. We then connect these ‘experts’ to the business world and tailor these connections to suit individual organisational needs.

In 2015, our Inclusive international volunteering model was recognised across the globe as a best practice approach to ensuring people with disabilities can both participate and benefit from development and be a catalyst for changing attitudes.

Our expertise in disability inclusion was acknowledged at the 2015 National Disability Awards where we won the Joint Minister’s Award in Inclusive Development in recognition of our efforts in providing new opportunities for people with disabilities and changing attitudes about what is possible.

Our Disability Inclusion Advisor, Alexandra Kay, continues to lead Scope Global in this field and we are currently transitioning our disability inclusion services into both the Australian and international marketplace.

Meet Our Experts

Zel Iscel

Meet one of our experts, Zel Iscel. Zel was born blind and arrived in Australia with her family at the age of six. Zel completed her degree in Politics and Government at Edith Cowan University in 2003 and became involved in disability advocacy while at university.

After her graduation in 2003 , Zel lived and worked in London for two years and contracted a serious case of the travel bug. In 2006, Zel began working at the Ethnic Disability Advocacy Centre which fights for the rights and interests of people with disability from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Since then she has worked in disability at national and international levels. In 2016, Zel was very fortunate to be part of Scope Global’s Disability Empowerment Skills Exchange (DESE) pilot project in Fiji. The DESE project gave the opportunity for people with disability from Australia to work with the Disabled People’s Organisations in Fiji. Zel worked with the United Blind Persons of Fiji to update the organisation’s policies and procedures. The experience changed her life in many ways.

Zel is very delighted to be working with Scope Global again as a Disability Consultant and looking forward to learning from and contributing to the valuable work of Scope Global. In addition, Zel is President of Blind Citizens WA, and also on the Board of Rights International Australia and DADAA.
