The support that Access to Work provides is considered on a case-by-case basis, dependent on individual work-related needs caused by disability or health conditions. Support can include specialist equipment, which may potentially include a ‘hoist’ if such an item is deemed to be necessary for the individual’s needs and appropriate within the terms of Access to Work guidance.
