The Reasonable Accommodation Fund

The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DESP) is responsible for providing labour market services for disabled people, assisting them with finding paid employment or preparing them for employment through a training or employment programme.

Under the Reasonable Accommodation Fund, the DESP can also help you as an employer to take appropriate measures to enable a person with a disability or impairment to have access to employment by providing the following grants and schemes:

  • the Workplace Equipment/Adaptation Grant
  • the Personal Reader Grant
  • the Job Interview Interpreter Grant 
  • the Employee Retention Grant
