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 @bizzielizzie   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    In reply to your answer I had a visit from SCOPE when the bad weather came around. Lovely to know they are there. I asked a member of our team. They do this.

    One thing I did do ask for ID as you never know. Although the lady had a SCOPE jacket on. Just to be safe.

    We are a supportive community who care and share.

    Ask the community anything.

    Plenty of information and advice.  New friends

    Take care

    Hi @bizzielizzie,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! :)

    Sorry to hear about the issues your husband's been having with his PIP appeal. We have a dedicated category on our community about Personal Independence Payment which you may find interesting and useful.
