Access to Work Scheme Guidance for Managers and Staff
Access to Work is a government funded scheme set up to provide help to employees whose health or disability affects the way they do their jobs.
The scheme provides advice and support to employers and their employees, and provides funds to purchase or pay for equipment and extra costs which may arise due to the employees' needs at work.
The Trust has created a flow-chart and guidance to help managers and staff have a better understanding of the process and ensure that where necessary contact is made with Access to Work Scheme following discussion between the line manager and staff. Please see the guidance for full details.
