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.

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    I would advise you go to the job centre who have disability coaches who can help with 
    Job search 

    Also scope have a job support programme in the employment section you may find useful

    Hi @Tresors and welcome to our community.

    I'm sorry to hear you're struggling to find work.  I think it's great you're determined to find employment so try not to let past setbacks knock you.  Have you applied for many jobs and gotten to interview stage? What type of job are you looking for?

    You might benefit from applying to Scope's Support to Work programme.  This is a 12 week free programme designed to help disabled people find work.  To be eligible for the programme you need to:
    • be 16 years or over
    • be looking for a paid job
    • have internet, email and telephone or Skype access
    • live in England or Wales.
    Some of the areas your advisor can help you with include:
    • identifying your strengths and transferable skills
    • developing confidence and job skills like time management
    • reviewing your CV to meet your employment goals
    • how and where to look for jobs
    • mock interviews
    • how to talk to your employer about your impairment and reasonable adjustments
    Unfortunately, Support to Work's systems are down at the moment due to essential upgrade work so they cannot take new applications. But if you are interested, visit the Support to Work webpage on/after Friday 30 July to register your interest.

    Just to let you know, I amended the title of your thread and moved it to our Employment and careers category to make it more visible to other members.  Good luck and keep us posted with how you get on.

    Hi welcome to the community,

    I had the same problem a while ago and was looking for work, as soon as I mentioned I had Autism I never heard back or got considered. As soon as I didn't mention it, I got interviews and eventually a job (that didn't last long due to my health). I wouldn't advise not telling them as eventually it leads to problems like I had. But it just shows that discrimination still goes on in the workplace and its so wrong.

    I'm sorry this is happening to you and I hope you find work soon or a decent employer that accepts you for who you are.
    I have Autism, ADHD, Schizophrenia, Gilberts Syndrome and Crohn's Disease and have knowledge in these areas.
