Can you take part?


Only some people can take part in the scheme. 

The scheme is for people with intellectual impairment. Intellectual impairment means: 

  • intellectual disability
  • autism spectrum disorder
  • dementia
  • acquired brain injury.

People who can take part in the scheme must have worked for an ADE for at least 1 day between 1 January 2004 and 28 May 2014.

And you must have had support each day to do your job. This is called daily support. 

Your wages, including training wages, must have been worked out with the BSWAT at some point in time.

You can ask your manager or your boss if your wages have been worked out with the BSWAT.

If your workplace used a different tool to work out your wages, you won’t get a payment.

Even if your wages were worked out using the BSWAT, you may not get a payment. It depends on your situation.

There’s more information about who can take part in the scheme in Chapter 3 of the Easy Read handbook.
