Access to  Elected Office Fund Wales


The fund which is administered by Disability Wales seeks to remove barriers faced by disabled people seeking elected office by providing financial assistance towards the cost of reasonable adjustments and support to overcome  impairment related barriers that would enable participation in the local government elections for Borough, City or County Council and Community or Town Council.


To see if you are eligible to stand for each type of council you should visit the Electoral Commission and read the eligibility criteria.


You should also consult guidance about the Elected Office Fund which can be accessed on the Disability Wales website, or by contacting Disability Wales by email at
