1. Overview

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.

Access to Work is only available in England, Scotland and Wales.
