Access to Work

 

Is a publicly funded employment support programme that aims to help more disabled people start or stay in work. It can provide practical and financial support for people who have a disability or long term physical or mental health condition.

 

Overview

 

If you’re disabled or have a physical or mental health condition that makes it hard for you to do your job, you can:

 

talk to your employer about changes they must make in your workplace

apply for Access to Work if you need extra help

 

Talk to your employer about changes they must make in your workplace

 

Your employer must make certain changes (known as ‘reasonable adjustments’) to make sure you’re not substantially disadvantaged when doing your job. These could include changing your working hours or providing equipment to help you do your job.

 

Get help from Access to Work

 

If the help you need at work is not covered by your employer making reasonable adjustments, you may be able to get help from Access to Work.

 

You need to have a paid job, or be about to start or return to one.

 

You’ll be offered support based on your needs, which may include a grant to help cover the costs of practical support in the workplace.

 

An Access to Work grant can pay for:

 

-special equipment, adaptations or support worker services to help you do things like answer the phone or go to meetings

-help getting to and from work

-You might not get a grant if you already get certain benefits.

 

The money does not have to be paid back and will not affect your other benefits.
