Access Support

Our commitment to accessibility and inclusion

Whatever your needs or abilities you can expect equal access when applying for our funding. If you find it difficult to apply, we are happy to make reasonable adjustments if you need them.

Using our website

You may get a better experience of our website by customising it to suit your individual needs. For example you can:

  • make the text larger
  • get the site text read aloud to you

For guides about how to customise your experience, visit My Computer, My Way, a website created by AbilityNet. On that site you can learn about your computer’s accessibility features and useful software you can install. These are known as assistive technologies.

Applying for funding

We use an online application system.

Sample application forms may be downloaded as either a PDF or Word document to review in advance.

If you are unable to use the online system, we can make reasonable adjustments or discuss alternative approaches such as applying via a hosting organisation, or as part of a group rather than as an individual if that is more appropriate to your needs. We can also pay for an access support worker to help you use the online application system (see below).

Pre-application access support bursary

If you have additional access needs, we offer a bursary of up to £500 to help you apply.

This may include:

  • paying for a support worker to help you fill in the application form
  • translating applications made in BSL into written English

Each request is considered based on your individual needs and the level of support you need.
