Facing a major life change?

Life is hard enough at the moment so getting Expert, Confidential and the right Advice, Advocacy & Support shouldn't be...

We can provide Information, Advice, Advocacy & Support to older people and their carers in Westminster on and around a range of complex issues they are facing in their lives. This includes but is not limited to welfare benefits, housing & social care, health care, bereavement, family life and loneliness

Going through a significant life event can be daunting and lonely. Sometimes you may just need someone to talk it through with and sometimes you may need more support. Help available can entail going through complex forms and paperwork. Help with filling them in and/or understand what is being asked. If you are struggling financially, we can help to maximise benefits and source any grants and charitable payments that may be available to you.   

We will also aim to advocate on your behalf with organisations and professionals, with you as the decision maker, and at all times, we will be guided by your views and wishes in order to help you make the right choices. We can make referrals to other services and organisations if they are better placed to meet your needs.
