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.
If we become concerned about you or anyone else while using one of our services, we will act in line with our safeguarding policy and procedures. This may involve sharing this information with relevant authorities to ensure we comply with our policies and legal obligations.

    Thanks for letting us know, @jimmy321. You might find Scope's advice on applying for PIP helpful, and there are also videos too. There are also FAQs on the assessment itself.

    For help filling in the form, your local Citizens Advice is probably your best bet. However, if there are specific questions you would like advice on, feel free to post them and the Online Community will be happy to help you out: many of our members have been through the process themselves. Hope this helps!
