Access to Work
Access to Work -
Am I Eligible?
You can use the government’s Access to Work grant to claim for any equipment you need to hear better in whatever work you do including meetings and on the telephone.
A hearing loss should not affect your ability to participate as an equal.
If your disability or health condition stops you from being able to do elements of your job, you may be eligible to receive a grant from Access to Work. For those who are hard of hearing, this will take the form of not being able to fully participate at work due to the inability to communicate effectively.
To be eligible for the Access to Work grant you need to comply with the following criteria:
The Access to Work scheme can cover the costs of any equipment that you need if you decide to get a job, will be self-employed, or even if you start your own business.
If you feel that your work is affected by a disability or health condition that is likely to last for 12 months or more, you can apply online.
Alternatively, ask the Disability Employment Adviser (DEA) at your local Jobcentre Plus about the Access to Work grant scheme.
This government scheme is described in full via the following link.
