An Access to Work grant helps pay for practical support if you have a disability, health or mental health condition so you can:

start working
stay in work
start your own business

How much you get depends on your circumstances. The money doesn’t have to be paid back and will not affect your other benefits. There is no set amount for an Access to Work grant. How much you get depends on your circumstances.
