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 @ktmuff and welcome to the community. Very good to meet you.
    You're in a safe place here, and among friends, so don't be shy of telling us about yourself or of asking any questions you may wish to. The better we get to know you, the more easily we may find ways of helping and supporting you.
    My dad walked out when I was about 10 years old and I've struggled with anxiety and depression for many years. And yes, what doesn't kill you does seem to make you stronger.:)
    Have a look around the site, see if there are any conversations you'd like to join in, and - whatever else - keep in touch.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
