Citizens Advice are working with the Personal Finance Society and Partnership to place qualified financial advisers in local Citizens Advice Bureaux. Richmond Citizens Advice Bureau is one of a select group of 22 bureaux nationally who now have the services of a qualified Independent Financial Adviser (IFA)
The IFA provides free generic financial advice to clients on subjects such as pensions, debt management, mortgage, releasing money from property, health and life insurance, banking and savings.
The service has been going for a couple of months and the response has been very positive. If you, or any of your client group need sound, professional financial advice, please contact Richmond Citizens Advice: www.rcabs.org for details of how to get in touch and request an appointment.I
Our residential homes continue to provide outstanding care, so exceptional that Joseph Field, one of RHLT’s senior support workers, received the Dignity in Care award for Carer of the Year - Learning Disabilities.
The nomination for this award was essentially for the standard of care provided for a resident with dementia, this being one of the challenges we face with our aging residents. RHLT has risen to this challenge, training our staff to meet these additional needs and providing the high level of care our residents justly deserve.
Congratulations Joe, we are all really proud of your achievement!
