Access To Work (ATW)

Access to Work (ATW) is a government grant which can pay for support in the workplace. Access to Work for Deaf people could be in the form of an interpreter for communication purposes or perhaps specialist equipment to enable the employee to fulfill their role sufficiently.  Some examples of using an interpreter through ATW can be to interpret during meetings, make telephone calls and general office support, to translating documents into more accessible formats.

Further information about the ATW scheme, who is eligible and how it works, can be found at the official Access to Work website.

If you need any further information about how ATW can support Deaf people in work, then please feel free to ask.
