The Free Money Advice Service has been setup by the government to provide impartial advice on most financial matters but is particularly good on Equity Release. 

Equity Release is a minefield but a necessary minefield! Get it right and older people can raise money on their property - potentially allowing them to afford to stay in their homes for the rest of their lives. Get it wrong and they can accumulate an enormous debt and effectively disinherit their children as the finance company claims their home in order to repay the accumulated loan when they die. The link below may help you decide whether this might be a useful route to go down. However just as importantly consider using a financial adviser.
This is a simple AgeUK Equity Release calculator which will help you find out how much an equity release loan would allow you to raise on your house.

Independent Financial Advisers - IFAs Newbury

Griffins Independent Financial Advisers

24-32 London Rd, Newbury RG14 1JX, UK – 01635 551333

When I first went to Griffins (GFS) for advice my pension was in a mess. I’d previously put my trust in Equitable Life and lost a lot of money because of the scandal there. The team at GFS has given me excellent advice and the results speak for themselves. I’m reassured by the fact that the advisers are all chartered financial planners – I want independent advice, not to be sold products.

Lloyds Bank

3-5 Bridge St, Newbury RG14 5BQ, UK – 0345 300 0000

All the staff in this branch are fabulous: efficient, knowledgeable, welcoming. It is a pleasure to have business here. Today I had to come in twice; I watched the smiling and lovely Laura Faulkner greet and serve customers. It was utterly delightful and even though she wasn't serving me, she filled my day with sunshine. On my second visit, I was served by Laura and I received the same warmth and sparkle she had shown others. What excellent customer service!!

There is not enough staff to keep that place running, had to wait for my turn almost 30 minutes.
