Buying your own home

The My Safe Home website offers specialist and independent information and advice to people with disabilities on all aspects of buying your own home.

Other information and advice

The Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA) provide a database of financial advisors who specialise in giving advice on finances in later life, enabling you to plan ahead or to make the most of your money once you reach retirement and older age. All advisors on the database have to prove that they meet appropriate criteria and have the right qualifications before they are accredited by SOLLA.
