Access to Work Grant for practical support if you have a disability, health or mental health condition

Add to My Shortlist

An Access to Work grant helps pay for practical support if you have a disability, health or mental health condition so you can:

  • start working
  • stay in work
  • start your own business

How much you get depends on your circumstances.  The money doesn’t have to be paid back and will not affect your other benefits.  There is no set amount for an Access to Work grant. How much you get depends on your circumstances.

The money can pay for things like:

  • adaptations to the equipment you use
  • special equipment
  • fares to work if you can’t use public transport
  • a support worker or job coach to help you in your workplace
  • a support service if you have a mental health condition and you’re absent from work or finding it difficult to work
  • disability awareness training for your colleagues
  • a communicator at a job interview
  • the cost of moving your equipment if you change location or job
