Access to Work

Access to Work can offer you financial and practical support to help you get or stay in work. The support will be based on your needs, for example a grant to help you get to and from work and support with managing your health at work.

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

  • Be over 16 years old
  • Live and work in Wales, England, or Scotland
  • Have a paid job or be about to start or return to one
