Support from LionHeart

What is LionHeart?

LionHeart is the only charity dedicated solely to the RICS community. Our main aim is a simple one - to help as many RICS members and their families as possible, and to help them as much as we can. As a member of the SCSI, LionHeart services are available to you.

From APC candidates, right through your career and into retirement, if you are an RICS professional we are here to help. Our support also extends to past members, and the partners and dependants of past and present RICS members.

The type of support we offer depends on each person’s individual circumstances - sometimes it’s as simple as a grant to get you through a tough time, while at other times all you need is a listening ear.
