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, my name is Lacewing!

Just saying hello as a new member. I have been reading the experience of a lady in the Benefit Trap and sympathize with her. I receive PIP and am awaiting the outcome of a review, not very hopefully, I must admit.
I am sickened by the obvious failure of the current benefits system to recognise genuine cases of disability and hardship. Scope's achievement in giving disabled people a platform to voice dissatisfaction is very important in consolidating our experiences and showing that we are not alone.

    Hello lacewing and welcome
    I hope your reveiw is successfull, the sysytem has been made intentionally hard for deserving people to claim. At the moment the best thing is to learn as much about the criteria for an award as possible, especially how the points scoring sysytem works in relation to your functionality

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
