Access to Work (AtW) is a publicly funded employment support programme, administered by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). The programme aims to help level the playing field for disabled people in the labour market. It addresses barriers to employment by providing a range of practical help. Support is available to all long-term disabled people aged 16 years and over who are in, or about to start, paid work, including self-employment

Access to Work (AtW) has the potential to be an extremely effective model, helping to address the substantial gap between the employment rate for disabled people and that of the rest of the population. Where it works well, it transforms the lives of disabled people, many of whom would be unable to work without it.
