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 @greencore   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Sorry what has happened. Understand the problems and issues surrounding the PIP assessments.

    Many of our community are going through similar issues and am sure you have a lot of a support. I know I am one member.

    Please can I ask have you appealed. Also need to look at the options what to do next.  Need to Mandatory Reconsideration.

    For further advice and information have a look at our posts on PIP.  You will find plenty of support there and lots of comments.

    Also if not happy with any assessments may I suggest contact your local MP.  It seems they are interested in any of these such incidents on assessments.

    I do know they has been much activity on the forums about the mistreatment of our community.

    ATOS and Capita are under scrutiny.  I believe you can add comments and contact them by phone or email to add complaint if it is deemed suitable. . Understand a lot of what is said in the booklet that you get with the assessment. Regarding the face to face does not happen.

    Much concern as I am only too aware of others going through the process. Including my good self.

    I hope you can find the courage to go on and fight. Remember we are a supportive caring community. Who also need to stand together to fight for our rights and beliefs.

    Am here to listen, help and advise. As all the community.

    Please take care
