Access to Work

I've seen a job advertised that I'd like to apply for but it states a car driver/ owner is essential. I'd be out in the community visiting clients in their own home. I'm unable to drive due to a disability. Could Access to Work be used for taxis or an assistant to drive me between clients homes? How much would my employer need to contribute towards it? I don't want to apply if it's going to cost the employer more than paying a car driver mileage allowance. I phoned Access to Work to ask but the advisor told me to phone back if I get the job. Does anyone have any experience of using Access to Work for something similar?
