The SCBWI recognises all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA+, gender diversity, neurodiversity, socio-economical marginalisation, disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities. We subscribe to a broad definition of disability, which includes but is not limited to physical, sensory, cognitive, intellectual, or developmental disabilities, chronic conditions, and mental health conditions (this may also include addiction). Furthermore, we subscribe to a social model of disability, which presents disability as created by barriers in the social environment, due to lack of equal access, stereotyping, and other forms of marginalisation.
Your household should earn less than the UK’s Minimum Income Standard, which varies according to your situation – please use www.minimumincome.org.uk to check what this is for you. Please be guided by the household amount rather than the individual amount and if you live in Inner/Outer London, make sure you choose this on the results page. For example, a person living on their own with no children outside London should earn less than £20,383, and a person living with their partner and two primary-age children in outer London should earn less than £51,794 as a household. You should also have less than £16,000 in savings. We rely on your honesty and will not be asking for proof.
