The Government’s Access to Work grant scheme provides support to help people with disabilities or health conditions start or stay in work. The support offered is based on individual needs, and could include a grant to help cover the costs of practical support in the workplace or for those working from home. An Access to Work grant does not need to be paid back and could pay for a range of different support, including:
- Support workers
- Specialist equipment
- Help with travel costs to work and back
- Mental health support.
You can find out more about the Access to Work scheme on GOV.UK.
