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.

So now what????

I’ve just handed my resignation in. I was a primary school teacher. Due to needing crutches or a wheelchair for distance, I can no longer do my job. (Osteoarthritis of both knees waiting for surgery). I need to work for sanity and money. What job can I do that doesn’t involve my knees?

    Hi, what about teaching online? Giving private lessons? Or is it not good idea with Primary School? Do you know another language by any chance? Then you could work as interpreter via video or via telephone. I asked similar question here not long ago, as I have similar problem, and one of the replies was working as bank customer advisor, which I thought was interesting. It depends on where would you feel confident. I don't know you so hard to advise. Hopefully you will find somewhere you will be happy with.
