Contact your local Workplace Contact in the DSP – see here for a list of contacts.
Also check out the Employee Retention Grant Scheme (ERGS). This scheme helps employers to retain employees who acquire a disability.
Assistance is in two phases:

1. Help with developing a retention strategy – up to 90% of the cost to a maximum of €2,500;

2. Implementing the retention strategy – up to 90% of the cost to a maximum of €12,500.

For new employees with disability (as opposed to an existing employee) check out the Workplace Equipment/ Adaptation Grant (WEAG) to adapt the workplace or buy specialised equipment for staff with disabilities. The maximum available grant is €6,348.70.
