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.

Hi, I’m Elaine and I struggle with M.E. Would love to chat with others who struggle too. It’s a very lonely place to be.

    Hello Elaine @ElaineB46 and a very warm welcome to the community. Very glad to have you with us and very, very sorry to hear about your struggle.
    I don't have M.E or anything like it, but if a friendly chat would be of use to you I hope you won't hesitate to be in touch with me (just use the tag @JennysDad ).
    I did a quick search using the Search box at the top right hand of the page using just the initials M.E and it brought up a number of items that you might like to have a look at.
    I hope you find something useful and, if not, please, please, please be in touch with us. We are here for you.
    Warmest best wishes

    Great to meet you. We are a very friendly group, there is no need to feel that you must struggle on alone.  we have some discussions on invisible impairments that you might want to get involved in.
