Global Support for RICS professionals

There are RICS professionals all over the world and while for practical reasons we cannot offer exactly the same service to those outside the UK, we can offer a lot of support if you find yourself facing difficult times. We are just a call away!

We are able to offer the following services outside the UK: 

Our grants are available outside the UK if you meet certain criteria. If you have less money coming in than going out each month, and have been coping with difficult financial circumstances brought about by things like ill health, redundancy or bereavement, why not contact us to see how we can help?

Back to Work Scheme
Our Back to Work service is available outside the UK but is limited to help that can be provided online - this can include help with your CV, advice and guidance on how to prepare for interviews and making the most of online opportunities for help.

Our range of free lunchtime webinars include personal finance and retirement planning, wellbeing and resilience - all carefully designed to help RICS professionals lead happier and healthier lives.

If you're stressed or struggling to cope, just having someone to talk to in confidence can make a real difference. Our team of expert support officers listen without judgement and can help you find a way forward.

We have streamlined the way we are able to offer counselling to RICS professionals outside the UK and Ireland to make it easier for us to refer people to vetted accredited counsellors in over 200 countries worldwide. Please speak to one of our support officers to access this free, professional service.

Legal helpline 
We are now able to offer access to a legal helpline to members in a number of European countries through Law Express and their partners. Please contact us to find out more.

Our support officers can also offer one-to-one coaching sessions via phone or video link to help you make changes in your work or home life.

Rofel's Story...

Rofel was a chartered surveyor from the Philippines who was living and working in Dubai with his family when he was suddenly made redundant. 
He had a severely disabled son and associated medical costs, and his sudden loss of income meant the family were struggling to meet their rent and other living costs.
LionHeart was able to provide financial assistance to help bridge the gap until Rofel was able to secure another job.
He said: "We were so vulnerable emotionally and were really afraid of the situation we found ourselves in, most especially because of our son's critical condition at that time."
