What is the Access to Elected Office Fund Wales?
The Access to Elected Office Fund Wales exists to assist disabled people who want to stand for elected office with the additional impairment related costs that are a barrier to their participation in politics. It is administered by Disability Wales and funded by the Welsh Government.
The Welsh Government has approved funding for a pilot scheme to fund reasonable adjustments and support for disabled candidates seeking election to the Senedd Cymru 2021 election and in the 2022 Local Government elections.
