Evaluation of Access to Work

The Access to Work (AtW) programme has been operating in Great Britain since 1994 and is designed for people with long-term health conditions or impairments who need practical support to take up work or to do their job. This project is a qualitative evaluation of AtW provision, involving customers, employers and a range of other stakeholders. The evaluation consists of three strands: an evaluation of AtW; an exploration of the effects of the decision that ministerial government departments should pay for their own adjustments; and a consideration of employment support within individual budget pilot areas.
