  • Strengthen understanding of international human rights law and the CRPD review process
  • Collate robust evidence and consult with disabled people and their organisations on progress and key concerns about disability rights
  • Launch independent reports on disability rights co-signed by a coalition of organisations.

The deadline for applications is 1st September 2021.
