Apply for an Access to Work grant

Check you’re eligible before you apply.

If you’re a civil servant, your employer will provide support instead of Access to Work. Contact them directly to arrange this.

You can apply for Access to Work online or by phone.

You’ll need to give:

  • your contact details
  • your workplace address and postcode
  • the name of a workplace contact who can confirm you work there (they will not be contacted without your permission)
  • the email address or work phone number of your workplace contact
  • your Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) number (if you’re self-employed)
  • information about how your condition affects your work and what support you think you need

If you need the form in other formats, such as braille, large print or audio CD, call the Access to Work helpline.
