Costs of special equipment, adapting premises and other support for a disabled worker may be reclaimed if that support is arranged and agreed through the Access to Work programme.
Access to Work provides practical advice and financial support to help overcome the barriers to work experienced by people who have long term health problems.
The programme is flexible to try and meet the needs of the employee and their job.
Contact the Disability Employment Adviser at your local Jobcentre Plus office or go to Gov.uk for advice in England, Scotland or Wales or NI Direct for Northern Ireland.
If you have more complex disability needs, they may recommend another programme, Work Choice.
