Deciding how to best deal with major transitions in our lives is tough, especially if there are no family or friends nearby. It's at times like these we need practical support from experienced and knowledgeable people.
Moving can be a long and difficult process, whether you own or rent. There are so many decisions to be made and things to organise. Our aim is to give support at your pace.
Our homes often need to be changed to deal with different stages in our life. Some of these things are obvious, like replacing a bath with a shower. Other situations need a bit more thought.
