All customers contacting Access to Work by telephone call a contact centre initially; details of their enquiry are taken and passed to the relevant team to arrange a call back. This applies to general enquiries and payment enquiries. The exception is when a customer has an application awaiting a decision; in these circumstances they will be provided with a name and direct contact number for an adviser.
