Changes to Access to Work during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

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.
