Funding for Disabled Peoples Organisations

The National Emergencies Trust has announced £1.5 million of funding to support grassroots Disabled Peoples Organisations (DPOs) across the UK to respond to the COVID-19 needs of disabled people.

The term ‘Disabled people’ is used to mean all groups of people with impairments including: people with learning difficulties, people who experience mental distress, people with a visual impairment, deaf people, people who are neuro diverse, people with long term health conditions and people with physical impairments

 

A total of £1 million is available for this programme.

This is broken down based on the disability population in each of the four nations of the UK:

  • Scotland: £120,000
  • Wales: £100,000
  • Northern Ireland: £100,000
  • England by regions:
    • North East: £41,800
    • Yorkshire & Humber: £83,400
    • North West: £118,000
    • Midlands: £174,000
    • East: £83,600
    • London: £90,600
    • South East: £117,800
    • South West: £90,800

Grants of between £1,000 and £25,000 are available. It is anticipated that 50% of the grants will be between £1,000 and £5,000; 25% will be between £5,000 and £10,000 and the remaining 25% will be between £15,000 and £25,000.

The funding period is eight months (1 November 2020 to 30 June 2021). All grant income and funding activity must be spent and completed by the end of June 2021.
