Partnerships – Legal & General

Helping care seekers and their families Understand, Find and Fund later life care.

About Legal & General

Established in 1836, Legal & General is one of the UK’s leading financial services groups and a major global investor, with almost £1.3 trillion in total assets under management at 30 June 2021.

Legal & General are dedicated to helping our ageing society, which is why they have launched the Legal & General Care Service. Legal & General want to make it as easy as possible for care seekers to understand their care options, find suitable care in the area they want, and ultimately pay for that care.

How we are working together

EAC have a history of delivering information and advice services. In recent years we have decided to specialise in later life housing options, resulting in the launch of our current Housing Advice service.

Legal & General (L&G) provide a Care Concierge service that supports care seekers and their families with finding and funding care.

Through this partnership, EAC and HousingCare.org users will have access to L&G Care Concierge service for a free in-depth consultation of their care options. Similarly, the EAC Housing Advice service will be available for users of L&G Care Concierge.

Why we are working together

It is EAC’s mission to help older people make informed choices about meeting their housing and care needs. The importance of expert information and advice is recognised by Legal & General and resulted in the launch of their Care Concierge Service.

By working together, EAC and L&G are providing services that will help older people and their families to navigate the journey of later life housing and care.

EAC and L&G have a long history of working together, with L&G sponsoring the EAC National Housing for Older People Awards since 2010.

“We have enjoyed a long working partnership with Legal & General and are glad to be working together again in a way that will provide expert housing advice and care advice services to a greater number of older people and their families.”

What we are hoping to achieve

Through the launch of the ‘EAC Care Line’, provided by Legal & General Care Concierge, we hope to provide expert one-to-one care guidance to over 1,000 people throughout 2022. Meanwhile, those seeking care advice will be encouraged to also consider their housing options and will benefit from a referral into the EAC Housing Advice service.
