The Access to Elected Office Fund offers individual grants of between £250 and £10,000 to disabled people who want to be selected as candidates for an election, or who are standing for election.
You can apply for money from the fund if you:
- can confirm you are eligible to stand for office under the requirements of electoral law, which are set out in the Electoral Commission’s guidance
- can provide evidence relating to your disability, and
- can show us evidence that you have been involved or interested in civic, community or other relevant activities.
