The Society of Later Life Advisers (SOLLA) is a NFP organisation founded in 2008 to help older people and their families find trusted accredited financial advisers who specialise in the financial needs of those in later life.
Good financial advice should help you make clear and informed decisions knowing that you have had the information and choices presented to you in a way that helps you make the best choices and decisions for you or for a family member.
A SOLLA accredited financial adviser can offer the added reassurance that they can give the practical help and guidance needed to help you make the right decisions at the right time.

Truth Legal Solicitors.
Louis MacWilliam. Michelle Lee.
The Immigration Team at Truth Legal are experts in advising care providers looking to sponsor workers from overseas, including Senior Care Workers.
Like much of the population, we were, and are, angry about the government’s treatment of care workers, especially in the context of immigration. Senior Care Workers are, however, eligible for sponsorship, and we were glad to see the role recognised as a Shortage Occupation in March 2021. Aside from being the right thing to do, listing Senior Care Workers as a Shortage Occupation makes their sponsorship easier for prospective employers like you.
Most importantly, the minimum salary you must pay sponsored Senior Care Workers is reduced to £20,480 gross per annum (£10.10 p/h). This means that sponsoring overseas care staff is now a viable option for many care providers struggling to recruit and retain staff, amidst an acute national shortage.
Obtaining and operating a sponsor licence can be confusing, and there are significant risks to you and your business if you don’t know what you’re doing. Truth Legal can remove the stress by helping you to navigate the entire sponsorship process smoothly. We will apply for the sponsor licence on your behalf, ensure you stay on the right side of Home Office compliance, and help you with any new hire you want to sponsor.
And when it comes to the immigration needs of the care sector, few solicitors can lay claim to the same knowledge, experience and understanding as the Immigration Team at Truth Legal.
Interested? Start here, where you’ll find more information about our track record, and why we care about care.
And for more detailed information about sponsoring Senior Care Workers, see our blog: How to Sponsor a Senior Care Worker.
Better still, contact Louis or Michelle for a free, no-obligation consultation. You can do that here.
Based in Yorkshire, Truth Legal is a firm of solicitors providing legal services to clients nationwide in the areas of immigration, employment, family, personal injury, litigation and more.
