Nellie Supports is a proud supporter of the Personal Finance Society's Financial Vulnerability Taskforce
To assist professionals and families, we are trained and accredited in the use of the Lichtenberg Financial Vulnerability interview model. This financial vulnerability assessment model is research-based. The reliability of the Lichtenberg Interview method has been validated across more than three years of field-testing.
Financial vulnerability assessments can determine the quality and soundness of a financial decision, and whether a transaction can continue with confidence or should be postponed.
Our assessments are person-centred, evidenced-based and therapeutic in nature. This means our assessors will work with the individual and their family/ friends to ensure the individual themselves gains an insight into any possible vulnerability while also recording evidence to support further decision making.
