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 @Bella61 and I do hope you receive this. It has taken us an awfully long time to get back to you and I'm sorry about that - we must just be a little short of weekend volunteers. I am really sorry.
    As to what to say... Well, it's safe to say pretty much anything you might want to say. Though they're a bit thin on the ground in the very early morning, and sometimes that little bit thin at a weekend, you are genuinely among friends here.
    You can chat, rant and rave or anything else. Someone will be listening, because someone here always knows that you matter.
    Best thing to do is to tell us - in your own time and without any pressure - about yourself, how you are feeling, what you are going through. This will help us to find the best friends for you, who have similar experiences or specialist knowledge that may be of service to you. That's really what we're for - being of service to people who matter.
    Here and listening,
    Warmest best wishes to you,
