If you are unemployed, self employed or in a job/work trial and you need to get a job, keep a job, or make progress in your career, Access to Work can help in a whole range of ways.
For example Access to Work can pay for:
A communicator for people who are deaf or have a hearing impairment.
A part time reader or assistance at work for someone who is blind.
A support worker if someone needs practical help either at work or getting to work.
Equipment (or adaptations to existing equipment) to suit individuals needs.
Adaptations to a car, or taxi fares or other transport costs if someone can not use public transport to get to work.
Alterations to premises or a working environment so that an employee with a disability can work there.
These are just a few examples. Access to Work will be flexible to suit each person's needs in their particular job.
For different kinds of help contact your Disability Employment Adviser.
