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.

    Hi @dottydotty, as you'll probably have seen the wait times seem to vary between people and locations, so it's difficult to tell when a reply will come. I know the waiting period must be difficult, so I hope it's as soon as possible for you.

    Keep us updated and do let us know, and fingers crossed for the outcome you're hoping for!
