Independent financial advice

We understand that you may be making important changes about how you live and need information and help to ensure you make decisions that are right for you.

Although we have lots of information available to help you, we always recommend that you talk to someone completely independent about money matters, particularly if you are thinking of moving into a care home, and especially if you own a property.
