Access to Work grant Assessment

Once the Access to Work Adviser has decided on the package of support they feel is appropriate for the employee, they will seek formal approval of their recommendations from Jobcentre Plus.

Arrange Agreed Support

The employer and employee will then receive a letter informing them of the approved level of specialist support and the grant available.

It is the responsibility of the employer - or employee, if self-employed - to arrange the agreed specialist support and buy the necessary assistive technology. The employer can then claim reimbursement of the approved costs from the Access to Work grant.
