The Access to Work (ATW) scheme provides practical and financial support for disabled people in work or starting a new job, including employment, self-employment, work experience placements and apprenticeships. ATW is a very important means of supporting blind and partially sighted people in gaining and retaining employment.

RNIB has just launched a survey aimed at people who have experience of ATW (including both successful and unsuccessful applications) to help us understand how the scheme works for blind and partially sighted people.

This will help RNIB to campaign for the best possible deal from ATW for people who are visually impaired.

The online survey can be accessed on the RNIB website here.

If you would prefer another format such as hard copy, large print, Braille, audio or through an interview over the phone, please e-mail campaigns@rnib.org.uk or call 020 7391 2123.
