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.

    To be honest, I'm struggling. All the news about Personal Independence Payments has triggered me enormously and I am finding it very difficult to sleep at night. Without my P.I.P. I would basically not be able to leave the house. My life would shrink beyond all recognition. I'm trying to stay in the day and remind myself that it hasn't happened yet but I have cPTSD so it's hard to switch my brain off.

    Welcome @Psylin, I totally understand why you might be feeling so stressed out by the situation. It's a really difficult thing to hear about especially when you've got your own things going on as well. You're not alone in the way that you're feeling and I hope our community can offer some support and comfort :)
