Access to Work scheme
This scheme is available to those who already have a paid job, are about to start a new job or are returning to an old job.
If help you need at work, you may be offered a grant to assist with covering the costs of added support within the workplace.
An Access to Work grant can help pay for:
- any special equipment adaptations or services that can help you to carry out tasks like answering the phone or attending meetings
- help travelling to and from work
It is important to acknowledge that eligibility for this grant will depend on what benefits you may already be receiving, but to find out more you can visit the Access to Work scheme page on the gov.uk website.
