This fund is currently closed. Find out if you can get help with disability-related expenses from the ‘EnAble Fund for Elected Office’ instead.

You could get a grant of between £250 and £40,000 if you’re disabled and standing for election to, or selection as a candidate in, the:

  • UK Parliament
  • English local government
  • Greater London Assembly
  • mayoral elections (England only)
  • Police and Crime Commissioner
  • English parish and town councils

You will not have to pay back any money you receive.

The fund is for disability-related costs you pay as part of standing for election - it does not cover general campaigning costs (like leaflets) or living costs.
