Applying for AtW

You are able to claim for the equipment you need so that you will be able to hear better in meetings, offices and on the telephone – so that you can participate as an equal. 

To be eligible for the Access to Work grant you must be in paid employment or self-employment, or with a confirmed start date, and: have a disability or health condition which affects your ability to work, be aged 16 or over, live and work in England, Scotland or Wales.

Access To Work chart

The Access to Work (AtW) scheme will cover the costs of any equipment that if you need if you decide to get a job, will be self-employed, or even if you start your own business.

If you feel that the type of work you do is affected by a disability or health condition that is likely to last for 12 months or more, contact your regional Access to Work contact centre to check whether you can get help.

Alternatively, ask the Disability Employment Adviser (DEA) at your local Jobcentre Plus about the Access to Work grant scheme.

"Right from the first enquiry I made to Gordon Morris, the service I received was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they even offered a workplace trial and helped us through the entire AtW process"
