Helping public services workers plan for, and protect, their future and their family’s future
We all know someone who works in the NHS or who is someone’s carer, we all know a teacher or a Police Officer or someone in the Armed Forces. We also all know how hard they work and how much time and effort they all put in to provide an excellent service to us all. This is especially true now during this crisis.
We also all know that, unfortunately and for various reasons, times have been tough for people in public service in recent years – funding has been cut, resources are stretched and they are being asked to take on more and more work while their wages are frozen. They are now being asked to be in the front-line of the fight against the Coronavirus.
Just in our small team, Matt’s wife is an NHS Nurse, Claire’s husband is a retired Police Officer, we have relatives who are teachers and carers, our kids are going through schools and some are receiving Special Educational Needs assistance. We all appreciate how tough life is for public service workers and we really appreciate the work they do for us all.
Giving back to those who care
At the moment, during this time of crisis, there are now more people than ever around the Country who have stepped forward to help in whatever way they can even though this puts them at greater risk from the virus. They are the Supermarket workers, delivery drivers, postal workers, refuse disposal workers and many, many more. They have been rightly called Key Workers and we also appreciate the efforts they are making for us all.
There is now also an army of Volunteers helping Food Banks to stay open, medicines to be delivered, food to be taken to people self-isolating etc etc.
As a Country we are coming together to help each other get through this difficult and frightening time.
Therefore, as a firm, we would like to give something back to all of these people and try to make their hard-earned money go a little bit further and help them make a plan to protect their future and their family’s future.
That is why, for all of 2020, we will offer a 20% reduction to our fixed fees and rates* to all NHS staff, carers, teachers, Police, members of the Armed Forces, Key Workers and Volunteers. We hope this will make it affordable for them to plan for, and protect, their future and their family’s future.
We can offer assistance with the following:
- Powers of Attorney
- Funeral Plans
- Court of Protection
- Estate Administration.
N.B. We work closely with several Independent Financial Advisers. Therefore, if you need financial advice, we can put you in touch with an expert.
Appointments to suit you – at a social distance!
As part of our normal service to our clients, we would always come to see you at home or at work so there would be no need to book an appointment to come and see us. However, at the moment, due to the Government’s social distancing guidelines, we can only offer telephone appointments. However, these appointments will be at a time to suit you, your working hours and your shifts. We offer fixed fees wherever possible and there are no hidden costs.
We are a small, friendly team and we are committed to helping you and your family plan for, and protect, your future.
