Access to Work Fund

From September 2013, young people with a disability, health or mental health condition on or about to start the work experience placement of a supported internship or traineeship, can apply to the Department for Work and Pensions' Access to Work fund.

Young people can apply for:

  • funding of travel (providing assistance for additional travel costs to and from their work experience placement because of their disability);
  • the costs of support workers, including job coaches;
  • specialist equipment for days that a young person is at the employer's premises;
  • and more.

There is no set amount for an Access to Work grant, and how much an individual receives depends upon their circumstances.

Here is a factsheet with some more information.
