Access to elected office fund

logoThe Access to Elected Office for Disabled People Fund offers individual grants of between £250 and £40,000 to disabled people who are planning to stand for election.

The grants help meet the additional support needs that a disabled person has that are associated with their disability. Without this support, a disabled person may face an additional barrier in the selection and campaign processes compared with a non-disabled person.

Am I eligible?

You can apply for money from the fund if you can:

This fund is for additional disability-related costs that you have to pay as part of standing for an election. It is not for general costs that any election candidate needs to meet and it also does not cover general living costs.
