Access to Work support available for job interviews

You can apply for money for communication support at job interviews

See information provided by the government below:

You can apply to Access to Work to get money for communication support at a job interview.
The money pays for a communication support worker to go to your job interview with you.
You can use this service if you:

  • are Deaf or hard of hearing and need a British Sign Language interpreter or lipspeaker
  • have a physical or mental health condition or learning difficulty and need communication support

You need to apply before the interview takes place and tell the government the total cost of the communication support you’ll need. For help with finding communication support and getting costs, you can contact your employment adviser or an organisation that specialises in supporting people with your needs.

  • The government pays the costs after the job interview has taken place.
  • The money does not have to be paid back and will not affect your other benefits.
