Free support for Deaf & disabled freelancers

We’ve been working behind the scenes to create a package of support for our vital Deaf and disabled freelance workforce. Have a read of everything below, because there may be something you are eligible to apply for.

Thanks to grants from Arts Council England and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, we can help connect you with other artists in the industry, help get your projects off the ground, or give you the tools you need to be creative from home.

Access Support for meetings:

Zoom meetings are seldom truly accessible. We can arrange and pay for access support to enable you to attend networking or industry specific meetings.

This can include interpreters, captioners, note-takers, Easy English papers or creative enablers.

To learn more, contact victoria@graeae.org with details.

Purchase or loan of technology:

To enable you to work as a professional from home we can help you get access to the technology you need. This may include: microphone, camera, tripod, editing software subscription, online or physical data storage, plus some specific access equipment that you have not been able to get through other means.

To apply, contact victoria@graeae.org with details. We will prioritise applications linked to specific projects you are hoping to deliver.
