Extra funding to help support disabled employees

The Department for Work and Pensions has announced extra funding for businesses where more than half of employees have a disability (‘supported businesses’). From April 2019, under the Access to Work programme, supported businesses will be able to apply for grants to pay for workplace support, such as adaptive equipment and job coaches for disabled employees. In addition, supported businesses that have at least one employee in a ‘protected place’ under the Work Choice programme will automatically receive £5,000 for each place in 2019/20 and 2020/21.
