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.

Not every one is who they seem to be.

As a community, we are here to help and support to the best of our ability. We have some excellent and knowledgeable community champions, who give their time freely and give great advice based on personal experience. Not every one will agree with all the advice given as we all have had different dealings with the various agencies.

It is understandable that people get upset and even desperate when faced with losing their benefits. Good manners cost nothing but do not get sucked into arguments with other members who may be angry and in pain

Please be mindful of the terms and conditions when using this forum,

Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
