FirstStop national services
FirstStop Advice operates nationally as well as locally in order to deliver a fully comprehensive, accessible and cost efficient service. Our main nationally-run services are:
We have two main websites, both run by Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC).
- This FirstStop website provides details of FirstStop's personal advice services - what they provide, who's involved and how to access them. It also explains how we hope to expand these services in partnership with more local and national organisations and authorities.
- Our HousingCare website provides a wealth of information – about care, housing and services for older people.

FirstStop National Advice Line
This is run by the charity Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC) supported by a number of specialist partner organisations (see below). It is a free service, provided by our team of six advisors, each of whom can provide information and answer questions about most aspects of accommodation, support and care in older age.

Other helpful services
There are a number of charitable or non-profit services that our advisors regularly mention to clients because they are particularly helpful and relevant. We have no connection with these services, and provide information about them simply as part of our public service role.
