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.
If we become concerned about you or anyone else while using one of our services, we will act in line with our safeguarding policy and procedures. This may involve sharing this information with relevant authorities to ensure we comply with our policies and legal obligations.

    Hi @francisalison908 welcome to the community! 

    Sorry to hear this, are you actually able to go out or are you housebound?

    Have you checked out Scope's advice and information regarding accessible leisure activities?

    If you're comfortable with sharing, would you mind telling us the county you live in so we can help look for groups, clubs, etc :)
