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.

    Hi @aldcroft1960

    Good Evening & Welcome it’s great to meet you.

    Have you got a local “CAB” office as they will be a good starting point.

    Hello @aldcroft1960   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Sorry to hear this. I would like to make another suggestion besides CAB  consider speaking to your local housing officer.

    Add to that AGE UK have a lots of information on their website.

    They might be interested in helping you. They do offer a lot of services, information and guidance on their website.

    I contacted them last year I was 53 .  Gave me a lot of advice.  See what they say.

    Add to that speak to  Disability UK and look on line for advice and consultation .

    Have look at our Housing and Independent living.

    We are here to support you give advice.

    You have come to the right place.

    Pleasure to meet you

    Take care
