ensuring everyone can benefit

Our ‘Inclusive Community Fund’ is a partnership with Camden Disability Action, funded by the London Borough of Camden’s Community Impacts programme. The programme puts people with disabilities at the heart of the decisions, empowering them to make informed choices on which projects to fund based on their own experiences.

WHAT WOULD THE Inclusive Community Panel LIKE TO SUPPORT? 

The Inclusive Fund exists to increase access to, and participation in, mainstream services, activities and facilities for disabled adults in Camden. The Inclusive Panel welcome proposals for innovative, practical solutions that create/improve existing spaces and activities that encourage community cohesion, inclusive participation and better access for adults with disabilities.

We will be seeking applicants for projects from charities, community groups and social enterprises with an annual income below £500,000 whose existing services, activities and facilities are not easily accessible or inclusive for adults with physical, learning, cognitive or mental health disabilities in Camden.

Examples of eligible proposals

  • Training for disabled adults to improve their facilitation skills so they can deliver community activities such as yoga classes or arts clubs.

  • Enhancing access to and enjoyment of arts and culture for disabled adults through sensory experiences such as BSL theatre performances.

  • Creating multi-sensory environments for adults with autism using interactive technology such as sensory projectors for film clubs.

  • Providing sports activities that includes tailored equipment and specialist support for adults with physical disabilities.
