The purpose of the DPO COVID-19 NET Emergency funding was to provide direct support to grassroots Disabled People's Organisations (DPO’s) across the UK. 

The partnership* has delivered a solid funding programme, built strong enduring relationships and added value to the DPO movement - despite the challenges of building a new consortium during a national emergency.

The future of DPOs depends on ongoing additional emergency funding to build on the achievements of this programme as it is now coming to an end.

*The DPO COVID-19 Coalition, led by Disability Action NI in partnership with Disability WalesInclusion Scotland and Inclusion London.
