Access to Work

Specialist support for individuals with an acquired brain injury (ABI) who are currently employed and need an extra hand in their workplace.

The Access to Work programme with Attend provides specialist support for individuals with an acquired brain injury (ABI) who are currently employed and need an extra hand in their workplace.

The programme identifies and tackles key elements which could directly or indirectly cause challenges whilst at work.

Everyone needs support in one way or another and I am grateful to have found the in-work support I needed with Access to Work.

Support with

A Job Coach

A Job Coach is provided for six 4-hour sessions to implement workplace strategies to overcome barriers faced at work. Common workplace challenges that can be addressed:

  • Memory
  • Attention
  • Decision-making
  • Organisation, prioritisation, and time-management
  • Assertion 
  • Communication with colleagues and managers

Through establishing these difficulties and putting the strategies into action, this will ensure that ABI survivors feel less restrained and prepared to fulfil the responsibilities of their role.

Further support with

A Job Aide

A Job Aide can be requested as a part of the programme, which offers help with specific tasks such as completing a spreadsheet.

If agreed by the employer, the Job Aide can last until retirement.

Moreover, brain injury awareness sessions will also be offered to employers so that they can understand the effects of an ABI and feel confident in working with their employees.
