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.

I am at my wits end with little to no support with a mental health condition and getting diagnosed with a heart condition that causes me to collapse. I have a mother at stage 4 cancer, a sister in critical condition with MRSA on her heart, grandmother in hospital in critical condition in the states. Currently waiting on a pip application and an ESA Appeal for the last 3 months. I'm on £2.00 of the last emergency for gas and electric and no food in the house I've had the 2 food vouchers allowed from the jobcenter. I really need so advice and support.
