    Assistive technology at work - pay for it yourself?

    Not sure what I think about this one.

    Especially the suggestion about possibly using PIP to lease AT; similar to Motability leases.

    Select committee report on assistive technology in the workplace:

    Open up Personal Independence Payments (PIP) to lease or buy AT, on the same principle as is currently used for claimants to lease cars – again with no additional cost to the taxpayer. For many disabled people out of work, even the cost of a mainstream laptop or smart phone is out of reach, but many need at least these basic, ‘universal’ forms of AT to access the job market.
    Not to mention often needing " ‘universal’ forms of AT" to access benefits.
