The Government is launching their Access to Elected Office strategy
this summer to provide practical support for disabled people who want
to become an elected representative.

As part of this strategy, Convey has been commissioned to administer
the Access to Elected Office Fund
http://www.access-to-elected-office-fund.org.uk/ , which will offer
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.

The grants will help disabled people meet the additional costs they
may face compared to a non-disabled person in standing for election,
such as extra transport costs or sign language interpreters.

If you are interested in applying to the fund yourself or you would
like to help promote the fund to disabled people you support, please
send an email to enquiries@convey.org.uk with your name and contact
details and we will get in touch with you with information and
resources when the fund is launched.
