If you are disabled or have a long-term health condition, we offer support to help you with the grant application process.
When you’re applying for funding, we offer different types of support.
For example, we can:
You can defer your application to the next round if you need to.
You can do this yourself if the scheme you’re applying to:
To defer your application, log on to Grant Tracker(opens in a new tab) once the deadline for the current round has passed. Find and select your application, then click the ‘Re-Apply’ button to defer it.
If the scheme you’re applying to has a preliminary application stage, contact us – we’ll defer your application for you.
We can provide costs to help you carry out your project if you or a member of staff employed on your grant is disabled or has a long-term health condition.
Costs can include, but are not limited to:
Disabled: we use the Equality Act (2010)(opens in a new tab) definition that defines disability as ‘a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term negative effect on a person’s ability to do normal daily activities’.
A disability may or may not be obvious. There are many hidden disabilities, such as mental health conditions like depression, and physical disabilities that may not need mobility aids, like some autoimmune disorders.
Long-term health condition: is any medical condition that cannot currently be cured, but can be managed with medication and/or other therapies. Examples include diabetes, osteoporosis and dementia.
These are different to acute conditions which usually have a finite duration.
