Free training for frontline staff and volunteers on home energy saving advice

As Covid-related restrictions continue, not least the extension of furlough, even more people will be having to stay at home and turn on their heating – if they can afford to. Now more than ever it’s important to raise awareness to vulnerable consumers of how to stay warm, how to use less energy, and how to pay less.

Donate your money to charities, not criminals, this Christmas

Help in constructively negotiating a complaint about an NHS service

The commitment, dedication and resilience of front-line staff throughout the COVID-19 pandemic is universally acknowledged and respected. It’s very rare that something goes wrong but, when it does, it needs resolving for the sakes of all involved – patients, families and professionals.
