The Irwin Mitchell Professional Grants Programme is a funding initiative to support the on-going professional development for those working with disabled people. The grant is open to professionals in frontline healthcare, charities and support organisations.

At Irwin Mitchell, we have a long-standing commitment to helping people with disabilities rebuild their lives after serious injury or illness. A key part of this is working with those who provide the professional support that helps make such a difference.

This Professional Grant is intended to help people working in this field enhance their skills and their professional role, so that they can achieve the best possible outcomes for those they assist. Individual grants of up to £500 are available to help pay for professional training development.

As part of a wider Irwin Mitchell Grants Programme, it will provide funding to a range of professionals, charities, individuals and groups who work with or support people with disabilities.
