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 Lesleyanne73!

I have Mosaic  Downs Syndrome and  learning disabilities. 
I do struggle a  lot with understanding things.
I love to have my own friends but I can be rather shy and sometimes I can be very  open and honest and that has got me into trouble sometimes
