Keeping your home at a reasonable temperature is good for your health and your wellbeing but as energy costs are rising, you might find it too expensive to heat or cool your home. Our energy costs payment is a fixed sum of £450 to help pay your gas, oil, electric and other energy bills. This is on top of any other payment from the government. If you’re living outside the UK, it can also be used towards air conditioning, batteries and generators.
We know that keeping your ICAEW membership is really important for both personal and professional reasons, but it might be challenging to pay it even at a reduced rate. We can provide a donation to cover this cost, and can pay it directly to the ICAEW for you.
We also offer a range of financial support for students, making sure you’re supported right from the start of your career journey.
If you’ve experienced a sudden change in your situation that means you’re no longer able to pay your essential bills, we can help. Our short-term grants can cover essential living expenses, including mortgage and rental payments, to give you the time and space you need to adjust and adapt.
“It was difficult to admit that I needed some help, but it gets easier every time. caba are very easy to get on with and nothing seems to take very long. I feel more secure now.”
Getting your children ready for a new school year can be expensive. Our back-to-school discretionary donation is a fixed sum to help cover these costs. The money can be used to buy school uniform, shoes, PE kits and other school essentials. Applications are open from May-October.
Costs around your home can emerge unexpectedly, whether a key appliance is no longer working or you need essential repairs. If your insurance is unable to help, please get in touch as we may be able to assist with a repair or replacement.
We can help with financial assistance in many other ways, including car repairs, mobility aids, funeral costs, care home top-up fees and adapting your home to make it more accessible. One of our friendly Support Officers will be happy to explore your needs.
