Coronavirus: information and updates

Community house rules

Scope's online community is for anyone with an interest in disability. We hope it will be a useful place to share information and ideas.

The community is not intended as a source of professional or medical advice and support.

The opinions expressed on the community do not reflect Scope policy.

Keep it friendly

We want our community to be a safe and supportive place.

Please make sure your messages respect others’ views and suggestions, even if you do not agree with them.

Please be careful what you say. Not everyone shares the same sense of humour!

Keep it safe

Please be careful about sharing information.

  • Always check that information is correct and appropriate.
  • Do not present opinions as facts.
  • Share reputable sources of information.

You are free to talk about your feeling and emotions. But please do not share content that might have a dangerous impact on others. For example, if it encourages or provides information about ending someone’s life.

Content we do not allow

Scope reserves the right to remove or edit any discussion, comment or message. We also reserve the right to restrict any member's access to the online community. We may do this if a post is:

  • impersonating someone
  • against the law
  • harassing, inaccurate, defamatory, abusive, disrespectful, offensive, pornographic, racist, sexist, threatening, vulgar, obscene, hateful or otherwise inappropriate
  • insensitive
  • misleading
  • dangerous to others
  • advertising
  • crowdfunding or asking for money
  • infringing copyright
  • personal information not suitable for public viewing like address, email or phone number
  • not relevant to the community
  • medical advice

This is to protect our members and the online community as a whole.

Protect yourself and others online

Please join us in keeping the Scope community a safe, supportive place for people to talk and swap ideas.
