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.

I’m here, after having 2 brain haemorrhages and a small stroke 5 years ago. My mobility is impaired, as is my short term memory, and a dozen other few things, but I’ve never lost my sense of humour!  Becoming more frequently isolated as children have flown the nest and so did the husband! Would like to chat to people who understand.
