Carers need to be supported too. So that’s what we're here for. Our health and carer support is free, impartial and strictly confidential. And it’s not just here for past and present ICAEW members, family members can take advantage of our services too.
Navigating local services
Making sense of the benefits system and applying for what you’re entitled to is no easy task. Our dedicated carer support officers can help you to deal effectively with social services and the NHS.
Adaptations and equipment
Our grants and donations can help you pay for home adaptations, respite care and specialist equipment and mobility aids. We can also arrange an Occupational Therapist visit to carry out an assessment and discuss your needs and the available options. Our support officers can help you understand and act on the recommendations.
End of life and bereavement support
Find Me Help is our free online support directory for people dealing with end of life. The facility allows users to search for services in their local area, including end of life care, bereavement support, information and advice, help with caring, and/or someone to talk to.
24-hour emotional support
When it gets tough, we’re here to offer a listening ear. Talk to our trained counsellors anytime online or on the phone to talk through your concerns, regain perspective and to see a way forward.
Telephone friendship service
CABA is working in partnership with Dementia UK to provide you and your family access to Admiral Nurses via Dementia UK’s helpline, Admiral Nursing Direct. Admiral Nurses are specialist dementia nurses who offer emotional and practical support to families living with dementia, helping them to live more positively in the present and face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.
Residential care top up fees
We're now able to offer support with the 'top up' costs of residential care. To find out if you or someone you care for is eligible for this support, call us on +44 (0) 1788 556 366. Our carer support officers are on hand to advise and help you and your loved ones find the care that’s right for you.
Support for people with autism
We've teamed up with The National Autistic Society to provide expert support for people on the autism spectrum and their families. From emotional support through the parent-to-parent telephone service, to education rights advice, there's a wide range of tailored support available to help families dealing with autism spectrum disorders take on new challenges together.

Real people, real stories
We're very lucky to have the support of family, but still, they don't have the same expertise as an Occupational Therapist. I think it's wonderful to have a service where a specialist can advise you.
Your questions answered
Are your services means tested?
Most of CABA's services are not means tested, however, we will consider someone’s income if financial assistance is required.
I am an accountant, but not a member of ICAEW, can you still help?
Our services are available to past and present ICAEW members, their carers and their families.
CABA has supported me in the past; will I be able to receive support from CABA again?
We understand that circumstances change. If you have received advice and support from us in the past there are no time limits or restrictions preventing you from receiving support from us again.
Will CABA support me if I live outside of the UK?
If you’re eligible for our support, we’ll support you regardless of where you live.
