Although there has been no publicly announced change of policy, it is clear that Access to Work have recently been taking a more restrictive view of support people can claim under the scheme. When people have their reviews they may find that support that was previously funded is now disallowed. This guide outlines some of the issues that may cause problems and includes suggestions on how to avoid them. It also includes information on how to challenge decisions that reduce or restrict your support.
