Supporting those affected by dementia
We’ve created a dedicated service to support anyone in the industry affected by dementia – whether that’s directly or though a loved one. Find out how you can access personalised support and advice to help you navigate the challenged of dementia.
Supporting those with autism
Autism Alliance UK is comprised of 18 autism charities across the UK who support those with autism and Asperger’s. Their website provides a huge amount of information concerning autism and also links through to local autism charities.
The Irish Society for Autism provides help and support for those with autism in Ireland.
Surviving a stroke
The Stroke Association provides information about strokes and what support is available to you in your local area. They also offer grants to those in need of financial help to aid recovery.
Turn 2 Us is a UK charity who help those facing financial hardship to access the support they are entitled to. Their website has a benefits calculator, a grants search tool along with a wealth of information relating to your personal situation.
Step Change UK and Step Change Ireland are a debt charity operating in the UK and Ireland who offer free debt advice. They have advisers who can talk through your debt and offer advice and help on how you can manage and repay the debt, helping you to create a budget and take action.
Our partnership with the housing charity Shelter enables us to refer suitable cases to Shelter to benefit from their in-depth housing advice in conjunction with our help. Shelter can provide specialist help and support to our beneficiaries who need help with issues such as mortgage or rent arrears, domestic abuse and unsuitable properties.
A helpline for older people
We have joined forces with Silver Line to reach older people who may be experiencing loneliness and isolation. Silver Line is a free confidential helpline providing information, friendship, and advice to older people. We can offer our older beneficiaries a weekly phone call or letter from Silver Line or facilitate you being a Silver Line Friend and helping others.
