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.

    Welcome to Scope's online forum. It is great to see you have joined us. What are your interests? We may be able to guide you to particular group discussions that you might find the most interesting if we know this information. Otherwise, do any of our community members have any guidance on what they would say their top three group discussions are? I will look forward to seeing you around on our forum  :)

    Welcome to the community, and thank you for sharing this. Do you receive any support from your GP to manage your mental health?

    Hello @Sammy_1994 and a warm welcome from me too :) How's your Monday going?

    It's good to hear you have a support network in place to help you with your needs.  I think I also spy a 'Make it count' image in your profile picture... did you happen to take part by any chance?  It's fine if not, but I'd love to hear the details if you did!

    I'm not the best at playing pool and my husband always tends to win, annoyingly!  Do you get to play much?

    Hi @Sammy_1994

    Thanks for sharing more details about yourself. Knowing that you struggle with mental health issues will hopefully allow us to support you the best we can. Scope has a discussion category called 'mental health issues' if you would like to communicate with others with similar experiences as I know that can be beneficial for some people. If you are interested, you can find it at https://forum.scope.org.uk/categories/mental-health-issues. Otherwise, please feel free to let us know if there is anything specific we can support you with  :) In the meantime, I look forward to seeing you around on the forum!
