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.

    Hello @GemBonham. We're very, very glad to have you with us.
    You sound to have an interesting range of leisure pursuits. Do you manage to get to the theatre? And, yes, I love cats too, and have two of them, Rosie and Daisy. I also have a passion for the big cats, and I love birds.
    You will find that you have found a safe place here and are among friends, so please don't be shy of telling us about yourself or of asking any questions. The better we get to know each other, the easier we may find ways to be of use to you.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
