The EnAble Fund for Elected Office is a £250,000 interim fund and is available until March 2020 or until the £250,000 budget is exhausted. The Fund supported around 40 candidates at this month’s local elections.

We have commissioned an independent evaluation, which will be published after the Fund has ended next year.
