The National Emergencies Trust (NET) has given £1.5m of funding to support grassroot DPOs across the UK to help deal with issues caused or made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic. Disability Wales has collaborated with Disability Action Northern Ireland, Inclusion Scotland, and Inclusion London to distribute this funding.
Here in Wales we are also very happy to say that the Welsh Government has awarded Disability Wales additional funding which is being used to boost the fund so we can support 9 DPOs in delivering their exciting projects.
We are very excited to be supporting these DPOs, many of whom have not had access to much funding before, and we look forward to seeing the results of their work.
Stay tuned to find out more about the project!
