Here are some of the frequently asked questions about our in work support programme

An appointment is an opportunity to discuss your needs and find out more about our service. A member of our team will contact you beforehand and arrange either a face to face appointment or an online appointment depending on your location.

No you do not need a diagnosis, when we meet you for your initial appointment we will discuss your needs and ensure that we are the right service for you whether you have a diagnosis or not.

It can be helpful if you have any diagnosis reports or occupational health reports to bring them along, but this is not necessary so do not worry if you do not have these available.

Support is usually delivered once a week for around 1 hour, however this will be depending on your needs and how much Access to Work funding you receive. We would discuss with you how your sessions would work and whether these would be at your place of work, online or at our office prior to the support starting.

We do not need to speak to your employer before the initial meeting but in order to put the support in place we would need to meet with your employer and get their approval for the support. This is because the support is funded via Access to Work and every month we would need your employer to sign the support form in order for us to receive our funding for the support.

This would depend on your Access to Work Funding claim that we would support you to apply for, sometimes support is funded for 6 months and other times you can get funding for 3 years, however if your support is funded for less time and you feel you need an extension we can help you apply to Access to Work for an extension of funding for a longer period.

No, neither you or your employer have to pay for this support, it is fully funded via the government’s Access to Work scheme.

Contact us to discuss your needs as soon as possible, we will try our best to accommodate you and book you in for an initial meeting with a member of our team to see how we can help you.

Speak to your employment coach who will be able to discuss this with you and we can help apply for a change of circumstances and request additional funding to support you for a period of time.
