Innovate UK introduces additional support for disabled innovators

Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), has rolled out application support for disabled innovators across all our funding opportunities. See the announcement here.

This new application support for disabled innovators will be in place for an initial 6-month pilot and is in partnership with Diversity and Ability (D&A) an award-winning social enterprise led by and for disabled people.

The expert coaches at D&A are able to provide a wide range of support in the form of, for example:

  • reading and comprehension of application questions
  • time management and planning
  • confidence building
  • proof reading and spelling-checks

This is a non-exhaustive list, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you are looking for support at
