Access to Work

About the Access to Work scheme

Access to Work is a government-funded grant scheme to help people with disabilities – and those with a physical or mental health condition – to start or stay in work.

The grant can help pay for specialist software – such as Caption.Ed, adapted equipment, a support worker or travel expenses to and from work depending on the needs of the employee.

If an Access to Work assessor has recommended Caption.Ed, you’re in the right place! Keep reading for more information or use the button below to speak to our team.
