ACCESS TO WORK
Access to Work is a benefit funded by the Department for Work and Pensions. It was created to help employees with disabilities or health conditions that make their job harder.
Involve Interpreter offers specialist services for deaf people in employment or self-employment, providing them with vital video-based communication at work. We recognise that every deaf person is different and needs different types of support for their job. We can offer a range of quality communication services, make working life easier and more productive.
All services can be pre-booked ensuring that you get support exactly when you need it, which means no delays accessing support during busy periods
Involve Interpreter Access to Work
Involve Interpreter aims to support deaf people in work or self-employment by providing specialised support to improve the quality of their day-to-day life.
Employers want to create inclusive workplaces, so it’s important that you tell them about any struggles in the workplace you experience due to hearing loss. If your deafness means you are finding it hard to complete the requirements of your job, you’re protected under the Equality Act 2010, which entitles you to Access to Work funding.
