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.

Hi everyone, I'm VisiblyInvisible - A name I'm sure many of you can relate to. It reflects my experiences of being just about visible enough to be certain I'm a real 3 dimensional person, but with the majority of my lived experiences being 'invisible' or non/unapparent to others in such a way they are consistently invalidated and require seemingly endless justification, evidencing and explanation!

Really happy to be here with you all and looking forward to chatting 🖤

    Hello VisiblyInvisible and welcome to the family. It is a place where you can call in whenever you want and if you have a question there is likely to be someone around who can help. They are plenty of conversations for you to have a look at and participate if you want to. If you want to start your own thread then please do. Take care and see you around.....
