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.

    My son has High Functioning Autism and lve been his carer for eight years now. I get brlp from Assist at the National Autistic Society who help him with counselling once a week. I go there for counselling too as l was diagnosed just two years ago at aged 62. 

    I help others in Hammersmith and Fulham the borough where l live. I'm a self elected, self trained Autism Advocate pushing for change in service provision. You can ask me anything and ilI try to help to the best of my ability
