New tech fund launched to help get more disabled people into work

The Access to Work scheme will offer firms huge savings on assistive equipment for disabled staff.

A new tech fund to help disabled people in the workplace has been unveiled by ministers.

The new fund through the Access to Work scheme will offer businesses potential savings of thousands of pounds when paying for assistive technology for disabled staff.

Previously, medium and large employers had to pay a mandatory contribution towards the cost of assistive technology required by disabled employees. 

This cost will now be waived for all employers under the new tech fund.
