Remaining politically neutral during General Election 2024

Under guidance from the Electoral Commission and Charity Commission, it's important that Scope remains politically neutral during General Elections.

While we understand that this period will see many passionate discussions and do not want to discourage open discussion, we cannot allow discussions which are purely intended to influence voting.

As ever, please make sure that your comments remain respectful of other people's opinions and keep to our online community house rules.

    Hey @gerrard. Welcome to Scope's forum. It is great to see you have joined us. How are you at the moment? 

    My understanding is that your employer will have to provide 'reasonable adjustments' under the Equality Act (2010).

    However, in terms of whether or not they will have to provide a disabled toilet, this depends on a couple of things including:

    • Is it a reasonable adjustment for your employer to provide a disabled toilet? 
    • Could you access toilet facilities that are already available without detriment?
    I hope this makes sense. Please don't hesitate to let us know if we can further support you with this or if you would like to discuss this further with us  :)
