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 @jbeach2912 - Welcome to this friendly & supportive communuty. Thank you for joining to find out more for your son. There seem to be quite a lot of people here with ASD, both young & old, so I hope you can get to chat with others.
    Scope does have a section on Autism & Asperger's so you might find it helpful to look at that too. See: https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/learning-disabilities-and-autism
    If you have any questions, please do say, as often someone here is able to help/advise.
