This section asks you to tell us in your own way about the disability-related support you need. You can also tell us why having this support is important for you during your candidacy. This is important because it helps us get to know more about you and your unique support needs. Please tell us as much as you feel comfortable to share.
The Fund can help with costs for disability-related support to do the activities required to stand as a political candidate. The Fund does not support the costs of activities that should be covered by political parties, if you belong to a party. Examples include the party having information in formats that can be read by screen readers, and disability training for your party colleagues.
The Fund does not cover disability-related costs covered by other sources of funding, such as ACC or individualised funding.
On the next and final page you will be asked to upload your supporting documents, including your budget and quotes.
