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.

Hello, I'm 60 years old, a war pensioner, work part time but increasingly less mobile and have realised I'm going to have to change jobs soon as my present role isn't suitable anymore.

    Just a quick welcome to the forum. I am a War pensioner too and have fairly recently had too take ill health retirement. Believe me, I would rather still be working but just wasn’t possible.

    You will find lots of info, advice and suggestions for help on the forum should you ever need to ask anything.

    Take it easy, at ease soldier!

    Sad to say I am a blue job, worked for crab air for 8 years, got hurt in 1991, and lumbered on until 1997.
    I was line swine on various flying machines!

    Ah wow, that must've been quite exciting seeing all those giant machines up close! Have you thought of anything you'd like to do instead?
