How will I fund later life care if I need it?

If you’ve recently been widowed, tackling financial matters can feel like an overwhelming task. We provide gentle support to help you make sense of your finances now, plan for the years ahead and feel more confident in your ability to manage your money going forward.

Should I be gifting money to my children/grandchildren now or leave it in a will?

Watching your loved ones reap the benefits of gifts made within your lifetime can bring real joy. But you need to be sure it won’t leave your struggling to maintain your own standard of living. We can crunch the numbers for you and explain the tax benefits of gifting.

Should I be downsizing?
