Access to Work can help you get or stay in work if you have a physical or mental health condition or disability.

The support you get will depend on your needs.

Through Access to Work, you can apply for a grant to help pay for:

  • practical support with your workthis could be things like specialist equipment or software, support workers like a BSL intepretor, or costs of travelling if you cannot use public transport. 
  • support with managing your mental health at work
  • money to pay for communication support at job interviews if you are deaf or hard of hearing and need a BSL intepretor or lipspeaker or if you need communication support for your learning difficulty. 

Access to Work will not pay for reasonable adjustments. These are the changes your employer must legally make to support you to do your job.
