EHRC is looking to appoint one or more contractors to deliver capacity-building projects on disability rights projects in England, Scotland and Wales.

- 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.
