Government support when employing disabled people
Access to Work support is simply brilliant - it means I can just get on with my job without worrying that the additional costs I incur because of my disability will cause a problem for my employers.
You can get financial support from the Government to cover most of the access costs of employing a disabled person through a scheme called Access to Work.
Access to Work is a service to support disabled people in work, operated through jobcentreplus. It offers practical advice and help in a flexible way that can be tailored to suit the needs of an individual in a particular job – and that includes covering the additional costs of employing a disabled person due to access needs.
