Additional information:

Access to Work (NI) is available to overcome the practical problems caused by disability. It offers advice and help in a flexible way that can be tailored to suit the needs of an individual in a particular job or getting to and from work.

It can also contribute towards the additional approved costs that arise. Personal and Business benefit are taken into account in all cases.

Access to Work (NI) can help towards the cost of:

  • communication support for deaf people or people who have a hearing impairment and need a communicator with them at interview
  • provision of special aids and equipment to suit particular work needs arising from disability
  • adaptations to premises and equipment in the workplace to facilitate an employee with disabilities
  • support if practical help is needed because of a disability, either at work or getting to and from work
  • support when a person with a disability incurs extra costs in travelling to and from work because of disability
  • support to assist employers where other additional costs arise because of disability - for example, extra 'in-work' travel costs, or provision of disability awareness training
