Access to Work is a publicly-funded employment support programme that aims to help more disabled people start or stay in work. It can provide practical and financial support if you have a disability or long-term physical or mental health condition.
An Access to Work grant can pay for practical support to help you:
- start working
- stay in work
- move into self-employment or start a business
The grant is not for business start-up costs.
How much you get depends on your circumstances. The money does not have to be paid back and will not affect your other benefits.
