More than £1m has now been awarded to 16 projects across London. All of the projects will help to diversify the disability sector and build the capacity of Deaf and Disabled people’s organisations to campaign for change.
We’re happy to share that we have awarded the first wave of grants to Deaf and Disabled-led organisations tackling inequality under our disability justice fund.
Disabled people were at the heart of decision-making for the fund. Projects were shortlisted by an advisory panel made up of Disabled activists and movement builders, and they also advised us to ensure the best possible funding decisions were made.
