Access to Work Grant

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

The grant is not for business start-up costs.

The money doesn't have to be paid back and will not affect your other benefits.

The money can pay for things like:

  • adaptations to the equipment you use
  • special equipment
  • fares to work if you can't use public transport
  • a support worker or job coach to help you in your workplace
  • a support service if you have a mental health condition and you're absent from work or finding it difficult to work
  • disability awareness training for your colleagues
  • a communicator at a job interview
  • the cost of moving your equipment if you change location or job
