Access to Work Fund
Young people on or about to start the work experience placement of a supported internship, or traineeship with a disability or health condition, can apply to the Department for Work and Pensions' Access to Work fund for the following:
- funding of travel (providing assistance for additional travel costs to and from their work experience placement because of their disability);
- the costs of job coach support; and
- specialist equipment for days that a young person is at the employer's premises.
There is no set amount for an Access to Work grant, and how much an individual receives depends upon their circumstances. Apply online at https://www.gov.uk/access-to-work/apply
