Sometimes, it may be harder for people to do things if they have a disability, health problem or mental health issue. A reasonable accommodation is when we change the way we usually do things to make sure people with disabilities can do it too. An example is flexible working arrangements that allow people to start and finish work at different times.

 

The Government of Ireland runs a Reasonable Accommodation Fund. The Department of Social Protection gives out this Fund to employers, and to employees and jobseekers with disabilities. The Fund gives money to help with the cost of reasonable accommodations at work.

 

The Reasonable Accommodation Fund is made up of four grants.

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