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.

Permitted work. Did you apply to the job centre first, or find the hub first?

Hi has anybody on ESA done permitted work on here. If so, did you apply to the job center first, or find the hub first, then tell DWP. 
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi @Sharon21 There's information about permitted work on our website here https://www.scope.org.uk/advice-and-support/permitted-work/  . I would advise finding the position first and then informing the job centre.

    Hi Sharon, I want to know this answer too. As there is no one able to reply as affirming this question it makes me doubtful and gives no confidence in it. It is very mysterious.

    You commented on a thread that’s almost 3 years old and the original poster hasn’t been active since November 2020. 
    It would be very difficult to compare someone else to yourself even if you did manage to find another member that’s currently doing permitted work. 
    There shouldn’t be a problem doing permitted work providing the work you do doesn’t contradict the reasons why you’re claiming ESA.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
