WELCOME TO THE
ACCESS TO ELECTED OFFICE WEBSITE
Who is this course for?
This course is an introduction to standing for elected office. It forms part of Government’s programme of work to support disabled people who may wish to stand for elected office. However the course itself is general and may be of interest to anyone interested in standing for elected office and who has no previous experience or knowledge of electoral issues.
The course includes case studies or examples contributed by disabled people who have already participated in political life. Please bear in mind that we cannot cover all forms of impairment and so the material often focuses on physical impairment. However we hope that even if the examples and tips included in this course are not directly relevant to you, that they will be helpful in inspiring you and other disabled people to consider participating.
As this course is new, we are piloting it and will be reviewing it in three months.
