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.

My daughter is autistic (my main reason for joining the Scope Community) but I am also diagnosed with ADHD and dyspraxia, and am waiting for an autism assessment.  Looking forward to 'meeting' some of you!

    Welcome to the community @VikingMermaid! Thanks for joining, and for telling us a bit about yourself and your family. 

    How are you and your daughter getting on? Are you having a good weekend so far?

    You're welcome to take a look around and join in with any discussions that interest you, or start your own. You might be particularly interested in our categories for discussions relating to autism, parenting, and neurological conditions
