10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Autism Berkshire Office


Find out about your rights to claim benefts and how to make a claim, plus information about employment advice and support and workplace rights.

Please note that these workshops are open to autistic young people and adults (aged 16+) who live in Reading, Wokingham or West Berkshire, or who attend a college or university in these areas, and their parents or carers – we regret that we are not able to offer advice to people from other areas, due to funding rules.

This online session will include detailed advice about claiming Universal Credit and Employment & Support Allowance (ESA) for those aged 16+, how to complete the application form, what supporting evidence to include when making a claim, and the appeals process.

It will also look at what employment advice and support is available and disabled people’s rights in the workplace.
