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.
If we become concerned about you or anyone else while using one of our services, we will act in line with our safeguarding policy and procedures. This may involve sharing this information with relevant authorities to ensure we comply with our policies and legal obligations.

I'm a carer of my 24 year old brother Dan. He has severe disabilities and I want to raise awareness for him.

    Hi @Smile4Dan and thank you for getting back to me.
    Here in welcomes and introductions is fine - this is where we start to get to know people. If, for some reason, the conversation is moved elsewhere - into another category - those who have commented on it will continue to be able to track it.
    Hope that helps.
    Warmest best wishes to you both,
    Richard
