Access to work cap on support grants inquiry


The Parliamentary and Health Service and Ombudsman recently published a report on complaints about Access to Work. In its conclusion, the report raised concern about the impact of the cap set on Access to Work support.

This means funding for support workers is provided on the basis of an annual salary only, and is limited to 1.5x of national earnings. The Committee is examining the effects of the cap on the employment of disabled people.
