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.

    Hi @malabar

    and a warm welcome to the community. We are glad to have you with us. It is important for you to know that this is a safe place and that you are among friends here. Whatever experiences you have had or are going through, whatever your troubles are or have been, you will almost certainly find people here who have experienced something similar, who care and can empathise with you. Don't hesitate to talk to us, to ask us questions or to tell us anything about yourself. The better we get to know you and how you feel, the more easily we may find ways to help you.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard

    Hi @malabar
    and it is good to hear from you. My respects to you for your roles in the RAF and coastguard. Both organisations I admire.
    You might like to look at the link to conversations on mental health issues here https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/mental-health-issues I am sure there are others in the community who have experience PTSD and will be glad to hear from you.
    You were a part-time coastguard at Rhyl? A long, long time ago that was a very popular holiday destination for my family (myself, my mother and my brother). I remember it with great affection.
    As I said before, you are among friends here. Don't hesitate to ask us anything or tell us anything that might enable us to offer you support.
    Warmest best wishes, always,
    Richard
