Cloudesley is committed to valuing diversity, promoting equity and equal access, and ensuring inclusion in all it does.

We use the Social Model of Disability, as defined by Inclusion London*. We are doing our best to ensure that our services are as accessible as possible. Despite this work, we recognise that there will still be access barriers. If you experience barriers to access, please do get in touch on 020 7697 4094 or at [email protected]

Access Bursary

Cloudesley is working hard to ensure our application process is as accessible as possible. However, we recognise that some people will still experience barriers to applying. If you are disabled and cannot access the application form, Cloudesley can offer an Access Bursary of up to £500 to assist with additional access costs, such as the cost of engaging a support worker. The process for applying for a bursary is as follows:

  • Email [email protected] or phone 020 7697 4094 to request support and provide the contact details of your support worker
  • We will then ask your support worker to send us a quote for the work
  • The request will then be considered by Cloudesley and we will aim to let you know our decision within two weeks
  • The support worker will be asked to invoice Cloudesley when the work is complete and we will pay them directly.

The Bursary cannot be used towards support workers who are already employed in their role or who are paid colleagues at your organisation. If you have any questions about the Bursary, please do not hesitate to get in touch using the details provided above.


For funding applications, we use online application forms. We always publish a list of the questions so that applicants can prepare their answers in advance. Guidelines are currently published as PDFs but alternative formats are available on request. If the application form is inaccessible, access bursaries are available to help pay for support to complete it.


Cloudesley’s Health Grants support Islington residents who have health problems or who are disabled. We give grants to individuals and to the local organisations that support them. As part of our Church Grants programme, we are currently running a three-year Church Access Project to improve the accessibility of the Church of England churches in Islington.

Cloudesley is based at Resource for London on Holloway Road. If you are visiting us for a meeting, accessibility information can be found on the Resource for London website. Please contact us at [email protected] to let us know if you need support.

*As defined by Inclusion London, the Social Model of Disability states that people have impairments but that the oppression, exclusion and discrimination people with impairments face is not an inevitable consequence of having an impairment, but is caused instead by the way society is run and organised. The Social Model of Disability holds that people with impairments are ‘disabled’ by the barriers operating in society that exclude and discriminate against them.
