Financial assistance

From the moment you begin your training, throughout your professional life and into retirement we can help. Our services are free, impartial and strictly confidential. You don’t have to donate to us to use them, and we never disclose information about you to anyone. We’re here for past and present ICAEW members, and close family members too.

Winter fuel payments

We understand that you might hesitate to turn up the thermostat if you're worried about how to pay the bills. That's why we're committed to making a fuel payment of £225 this winter to those who need it.
