More useful stuff for HIA case workers…

“FILT staff are always very understanding of each individual case that I contact them about. They consider each of the client’s needs and give helpful advice and funding whenever possible.

They are always very approachable and easy to access. Decisions are quickly made and funding arrives when promised.

Many thanks… FILT have made a huge difference to the lives of many of my clients.”
