Employment Support

Find out about support to help you get back into work if you have a disability or health condition. If you have a disability or a health condition you could get support to help you find, and keep a job.

Access to Work

Access to Work can offer you financial and practical support. The support will be based on your needs, for example a grant to help you get to and from work.

Through Access to Work you can also apply to get money for communication support at a job interview.

To get support, you must:

  • Have a disability or health condition (physical or mental) that makes it hard for you to do parts of your job
  • Be over 16 years old
  • Live in Wales, England, or Scotland
  • Have a paid job or be about to start or return to one

For up to date information and further details view Access to Work on gov.uk.
