PEOPLE on health-related benefits may qualify for a grant of up to £250 when they get a job.
The scheme - introduced by the Papworth Trust - is designed to help with funding extra equipment needed by new employees, such as clothes for work.
The trust will also provide a two-day training course, worth £200, to help boost disabled jobseekers' confidence. The course includes comprehensive support and a self-help 30-day "toolkit".
In all, up to £500-worth of benefit is on offer. If new workers successfully introduce a friend on disability benefit to qualify they will receive £50 of "thank-you" vouchers from the trust to spend in High Street stores.

Candidates for benefit must be registered with a Papworth Trust employment adviser, who can arrange individually-tailored programmes for people who have been long-term unemployed because of their disability or as a result of a workplace or road traffic injury or serious illness.
