What is Access to Work?
If you are ADHD (diagnosis helps but is not necessarily required), live in UK, are employed or run your own business you may be entitled to claim back funds for your ADHD business coaching.
The money comes from a government disability scheme known as Access to Work – A2W scheme. A2W provides practical advice and support to help you overcome work-related obstacles. It can award grants towards extra employment costs, like ADHD coaching that can help you develop effective work habits and routines to overcome your ADHD challenges.

- Access to Work typically refunds you for six months of ADHD coaching
