Access to Work and You- Information session


Do you want to know more about what Access to Work is and how can it help you? Want to know what support options are available and get help with identifying the right one for you?

You can join one of our online event this February

We are hosting two online events about Access to Work and how it can help you. We will be talking about the application process and helping people to understand more about the eligibility criteria.

We will be talking about some of the communication support services that Access to Work fund. These will include speech-to-text-relay, BSL interpreters, as well as deaf awareness sessions. We will cover how and where you can find these types of communication support. Our aim is to help you understand more about Access to Work in order to get the right communication support in place for you.  There will be time at the end of the session to ask questions.
