We all face challenges in our lives and careers. Whether you’re a past or present chartered accountant and ICAEW member, ACA student, or a close family member, we’re here for you.
Money worries can affect anyone at any time. Here at caba, we offer an array of help to get your finances back on track. This includes free confidential debt advice, means-tested financial grants to assist with cost of living pressures and advice on benefits and budgeting.
Feeling overextended or under-stimulated at work can be big causes of stress, anxiety, and depression. Our always-on culture, where the line between work and home is blurred, can also cause us to feel frazzled and neglect our mental health.
Our guides will help you get a better understanding of your mental health, along with techniques to build your resilience and emotional wellbeing.
If you’re feeling depressed or anxious, or dealing with the emotional impact of relationship problems, bereavement or redundancy, we can help. Talk to a registered counsellor online or over the phone, in total confidence, and explore our range of wellbeing resources.
Are care costs at home or in residential care a problem? Let us know. Get help accessing and understanding care services, or with home adaptations and specialist equipment.
If you’re struggling to pay your rent or mortgage, keep up with household repairs or pay for everyday essentials, we can help. Apply for a monthly shortfall grant to tide you over, or a donation to pay for a one-off expense, such as replacing essential white goods.
If debts are getting you down, we can advise you. Get in touch with a professional debt adviser, who can provide impartial and confidential advice and work with you to create an action plan aimed at improving your financial situation and alleviating your debts.
Managing the pressure of exams whilst balancing a demanding job and maintaining a work-life balance is tough. That’s why we’re here. We offer a range of services to support your mental, financial, and physical health to ensure you thrive personally and professionally. Head over to ACA student support hub to find out the support that's on offer to you.
If you’re aiming for promotion, looking to change career direction, returning to work after a break or planning your retirement, we can help. Professional coaching and development courses are on-hand to guide you on the next step of your journey.
If you have an issue relating to family, consumer or employment law - or any other legal matter – we’re here to help. In England and Wales, independent legal advice is available over the phone within hours, and our comprehensive online resources are available globally.
Life is complicated. If the challenge you’re facing isn’t listed on this page, we may still be able to help. Please get in touch for independent, confidential support. If we don’t have the answer, we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction.
We support past and present members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW), ACA students, ICAEW staff members, and the family and carers of members and students.
You can find out more about our available support both in the UK and around the world on our support we offer page.
If you need financial support, we carry out a means test where we consider income, expenditure, capital and assets.
