Money and legal

If you have a health problem, you may not be aware of your legal rights or how best to cope financially. By learning more about money and legal matters, you can make the most of your money and make sure you are treated in a fair and just way.

This section includes information on financial help you might be entitled to, how to manage your money or someone else's money, what your rights are as a person with a health problem or disability, and how to obtain legal advice.

You may feel that you're not being treated fairly or getting what you deserve, but reading endless books or websites about law and finance may seem a bit daunting. Our information on money and legal matters is easy to read and will help you understand what your rights are and where you can go for help. 

Select one of the items on the menu on the left to find out more about your money and your legal rights. You can also find some useful information in the boxes on the right.
