A Warm Welcome

From LionHeart

LionHeart is the charity for RICS professionals past and present, and their families.

We pride ourselves on offering the expert and confidential support that can help prevent life's challenges from turning into life's crises. 
We'll spend time listening to your concerns and worries and talk you through some of the ways we can help.
Usually, you'll speak to the same member of our support services team, so you get to know who you're talking to - and they can be by your side for as long as you need.
Everyone is different, and our support recognises that. Every person we help gets a tailor-made package of support to fit their circumstances. 

Here are just some of the ways we help:


Financial Support 

In some cases, we can help financially in certain circumstances with grants for up to two years, or give one-off grants in an emergency. We also offer debt management and advice, or help to claim any benefits you are entitled to.
And we have a series of financial know-how webinars to help prepare you for a sounder financial future, whether you're at the very beginning of your career or looking towards retirement.

2Health & Wellbeing 

Our professional BACP registered counsellors offer confidential counselling either over the phone or via secure video calling.
We know fast access to help when you need it is vital, so we keep our waiting lists as low as possible. Our support officers may also offer a range of other help and emotional support no matter what your circumstances. 

9Legal Support

If you're worried about a legal problem we can offer a free referral for one-off legal advice and signpost you towards further help.

5Work-Related Support
Everyone needs a helping hand in their working lives from time to time. We can help with career coaching, and access to online resources that cover topics like networking, personal branding, interview skills, and much more. 
If you come to us due to job loss, you may be offered our Back to Work Scheme, alongside some financial support and health and wellbeing support. 
Our support officers are also able to offer one-to-one coaching style sessions or help you work on your confidence and presentation skills, especially if you are approaching your APC panel or looking to move up the career ladder.



Global (non-UK) Members 

Our support is available to RICS professionals no matter where they are based, including financial support in certain circumstances, Back to Work support and coaching, plus access to legal advice and counselling through our international partners.


Early Career Support
