What is Access To Work?

Access to Work (AtW) is a Government programme delivered by Job Centre Plus which provides advice and a financial grant for practical support to overcome work-related barriers due to disability. It is available to customers with a disability who are in employment or with a job to start.

An Access to Work grant can pay for practical support if you have a disability, health or mental health condition to help you:

  • start working
  • stay in work
  • move into self-employment or start a business

How much you get depends on your circumstances.  
The money doesn’t have to be paid back and will not affect your other benefits.

For more detailed information, get in touch with Access to Work or have a look at the official site of the Access to Work scheme.
