Our commitment to accessibility and inclusion
Our vision is of a just society in which everyone can realise their potential and enjoy a fulfilling and creative life. To achieve this, we need to tackle inequalities head-on and use all of our resources to drive positive change, so a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) sits at the centre of our strategy.
We know that not everyone has the same advantages and opportunities – there is no level playing field – and we will work even harder to engage with individuals and groups who experience structural barriers, and to fund work that tackles root causes, structural and systemic inequality, and injustice.
If you find it difficult to apply for disability or any other reason, there are a number of ways we can help you.
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.
We aim to ensure that this website conforms to level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1). We recognise that some pages do not yet meet the guidelines but we are working to improve the website with user-friendly and accessible content.
If you have feedback on areas of the website that are unclear, we’d like to know about them – please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Applying for funding
We use an online application system.
Sample application forms can be downloaded as Word and large print documents to review in advance. We are working to introduce a wider range of alternative formats in the coming months.
If our application portal is inaccessible to you we will make reasonable adjustments as required, or we can pay for an access support worker to help you apply – see Access Support Bursary for more details.
