We are currently building a digital service which will enable people/customers to:

  • Submit a claim for Access to Work online
  • View the status of previously submitted claims
  • See how much of their grant award is left

We have extensively tested and iterated designs for this service with a range of users to ensure it is inclusive, usable and meets the needs of Access to Work recipients.

We will begin testing this new service with a small number of users soon before scaling up next year.
