The Government’s Access to Work grant scheme could provide support to enable people with disabilities or health conditions start a new job 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.

If your health condition requires you to work from home sometimes, Access to Work could also help with adjustments needed at home to help you stay in work.
