What is Access to Work?
Access to Work (AtW) is a publicly funded employment support grant scheme that aims to support disabled people to start or stay in work. It can provide practical and financial support if you have a disability or long term physical or mental health condition. An easy read version of the AtW website is also available for those with learning disabilities or who have difficulties reading.
The application to AtW needs to be made directly by you as the staff member. If you are new in post, please aim to make this application within the first 6 weeks of your employment.
We recommend that you read the information on this page fully before applying for the grant and let our Occupational Health (OH) team and your manager know in the earliest instance if you wish to apply for the grant. This is to avoid delays in receiving your support or equipment.
