Welcome to the Access to Elected Office Fund

Information taken from DRUK newsletter – @DisRightsUK

The Government has set up a fund to support disabled people who want to be considered for selection as candidates for an election, or are standing for election.

for full details see here

The fund offers individual grants of between £250 and £20,000 to disabled people who want to be considered for selection as candidates for an election, or are standing for election.

The grants help meet the additional support needs that a disabled person has that are associated with their disability. If this support were not provided, a disabled person may face an additional barrier in the selection and campaign processes compared to a non-disabled person.
