Can I be a Councillor if I have a disability?

Test Valley Borough Council is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion, and will provide the necessary support to councillors to meet particular needs or requirements. The Access to Elected Office for Disabled People Fund offers individual grants of between £250 and £20,000 to disabled people who are planning to stand for election.

Councillors are advised to let the Council know if they have any special needs or requirements.
