answer text <p>Access to Work awards are capped at £57,200.00 this year. If a customer’s application for support is likely to be affected by this upper limit, their application is not rejected. An Access to Work adviser will work with the customer and their employer in order to ensure that appropriate support can still be offered. For example, Access to Work may offer such customers a managed personal budget to enable more flexibility of support.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this
