Living with an illness or disability often brings about additional financial pressures. This may be as a result of being unable to work or because of increased costs incurred as a result of needing to adapt your environment or purchase specialist equipment.

Physical illness and disability can also be accompanied by increased stress, depression or anxiety. We have a range of services that can help support you and your immediate family.

We have a confidential 24-hour helpline if you want to talk about your personal circumstances and our online resources covers a range of health and wellbeing topics.
