Alternative Ways Of Working

Many people today work part-time, flexibly or job-share. Examples include a week to complete a set number of hours but flexibility about when to do this and / or the opportunity to work some of the hours from home. These sorts of options can be because of health / disability, caring responsibilities, other personal commitments / choices or simply to do with what opportunities are available. 

If you want to pursue this option, check your entitlements to Access to Work support and what, if any impact this might have on any of the benefits and other support you're entitled to. Your local JobCentrePlus should be able to advise.
