Although we cannot provide legal representation if you were not in membership at the time of the incident, we can help you in other ways.
If your financial situation changes due to your situation, an assessment from the Lamplight Support Service could help you maximise your income, check your eligibility for benefits and provide a small one-off grant for essential items (if appropriate).
Where debt is an added concern, members can be referred on to our money and debt advisers for further advice and assistance. Our advisers are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority for consumer credit regulated activities.
If you are feeling stressed, disappointed or upset at any point, contact the RCN’s Counselling Service. We offer short term, telephone based counselling as part of your membership.
We also have a range on online resource you can access. For example, our careers resources for members include advice on applying for jobs following dismissal if that is relevant to your situation.
