Work Choice

3. Eligibility

To qualify for Work Choice you must:

  • live in England or Wales
  • be of working age
  • need support in work as well as to find a job
  • be able to work at least 16 hours a week after Work Entry Support
  • have a recognised disability that means you find it hard to get or keep a job
  • need specialist help that you can’t get from other government programmes or schemes - for example workplace adjustments, suppliers working in partnership with Jobcentre Plus or Access to Work

You can apply if you have a job but are at risk of losing it because of your disability. This also applies if you’re self-employed.

You don’t have to be getting benefits to apply.

Work Choice has closed for new applications in Wales and the North West of England (except Manchester).
