What is Access to Work

Access to Work is a government programme that supports individuals with disabilities or health conditions to help them start or stay in work. 

The programme offers personalised support based on the individual's needs and the nature of their disability. This support can include things like specialised equipment, adaptations to the workplace, a coach or additional travel support.

What Access to Work can support you with

Access to Work funding in the UK can cover a variety of support measures to assist individuals with disabilities or health conditions in the workplace. The specific support provided is tailored to the individual's needs.


Here are some examples of what Access to Work funding can cover:

Specialised Equipment: Funding can be used to purchase or lease equipment necessary for the individual to perform their job. This might include specialised computer software, ergonomic furniture, or assistive technology.

Adaptations to the Workplace: If physical adaptations are needed to accommodate the individual's disability, such as ramps, modified desks, or accessible bathroom facilities, Access to Work can help cover these costs.

Support Worker Costs: Funding can be used to cover the costs of a support worker who assists the individual in the workplace. This could include a job coach or a support worker who helps with specific tasks.

Travel Assistance: If the individual faces additional costs in travelling to and from work due to their disability, such as accessible transportation or a personal travel assistant, Access to Work can provide support.

Communication Support: For individuals with communication difficulties, funding can be allocated for communication support workers, interpreters, or sign language interpreters.

Mental Health Support: Access to Work recognises mental health conditions, and funding can be used for support services, counselling, or other mental health accommodations.

Eligibility As part of Access to Work, you may be eligible for:

  • A grant to help pay for practical support with your work

  • Support with managing your mental health at work

For these types of support, you must:

  • Be 16 or over

  • Have a physical or mental health condition or disability, meaning you need support to do your job or get to and from work.

  • Be in paid work (or be about to start or return to paid work in the next 12 weeks).

It's important to note that the level of support and the items covered depend on the specific needs of the individual. The process involves an assessment of the individual's needs and working with an Access to Work adviser to determine the most appropriate support.

We can guide you through the application process and help you gather any necessary documentation to support your application.
