Apply for the Access To Work Grant

Does anyone have any experience applying for the Access to Work Grant? If so, I have a few questions I was wondering if anyone if the wiser on;

-Do I need to have a registered business and if so for how long?
-Whats the minimum I can earn per week? (it says “up to” £160/week but I don’t know if theres a minimum)
-Do I need to provide bank statements with regular income of the required amount per week and if so how far back do the statements need to go?
-Do I need to prove I work less than 16 hours a week and if so how do I prove this?
-What other benefits affect the Access to Work Grant application and what future applications for other benefits might the Access to Work Grant affect.
-Does Universal Credit include the Access to Work Grant if you are eligible?

many thanks

@joshd , your best bet is to consult the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) and see if they can suggest some assistance, be it financial or otherwise.
