Your life after redundancy

If you or a close family member is facing redundancy, we can provide a package of support to help you through this difficult time. Redundancy ranks as one of the most stressful of life experiences for many people and whilst it is not usually welcome, it is something that happens to many of us during our working lives.

How we can help

We’re here to help you stay positive and to give you the tools to turn redundancy into an opportunity for change. As an ICE member, if you or your family are facing redundancy, please get in touch. From financial assistance to keep you afloat while you’re out of work to emotional and career support to help you get back on track, we can help:

Financial grants — Emergency grants in a crisis or monthly grants for up to six months, or longer depending on the circumstances.

Financial guidance — Confidential, impartial advice from a registered IFA if you are struggling to make ends meet.

‘Back to Work’ scheme — Our programme following redundancy or unemployment helps to get you back on your feet and in employment within six months.

Free 24/7 helpline — Confidential, expert advice on a vast range of topics, including debt, employment issues, financial planning and more.

Counselling — Helping you come to terms with your change in circumstance.
