Standing for Election
If you are thinking of standing for election you may wish to have a look at our booklet a copy of which can be downloaded from this page or telephone 01789 260210 for a copy to be sent to you.
The Government Equalities Office have in August 2012 launched a new £2.6m fund help people with a disability to stand for election. PCC elections will be the first such opportunity. The new fund will help meet the additional costs a disabled candidate may face in standing for election as police and crime commissioners, councillors or MPs, such as extra transport or sign-language interpreters.
The fund will offer individual grants of between £250 and £10,000 to disabled people who want to be selected as candidates for an election, or who are standing for election. In addition to the fund, a new online introductory training package went live today, tailored to disabled people who are interested in a political career. The fund and online training are part of the government's access to elected office strategy which also includes paid internships for disabled candidates on the speaker's parliamentary placement scheme.
