Support if you employ someone who is disabled

Disability support: Access to Work (NI)

Access to Work (NI) can help by providing advice and an assessment of your employee's disability needs in the workplace and, if appropriate, a financial grant towards the cost of necessary support.

For example, Access to Work (NI) may be able to pay towards the following:

  • adaptations to premises and equipment
  • communicator support at interviews
  • special aids and equipment
  • travel to work costs
  • a support worker
  • travel within work eg to attend a meeting or training course

Depending on your employee's circumstances, Access to Work (NI) may be able to provide support under more than one of these areas.
