Lighthouse renews contract with nursing union

Lighthouse Group has renewed its contract to provide financial advice to the members of the Royal College of Nursing for a further three years.

The Royal College of Nursing has around 435,000 members, including registered nurses, midwives, health care assistants and nursing students, working in the NHS and independent sectors.

Andy Cowan, business director at the Royal College of Nursing, said: "We are pleased to have renewed this contract with Lighthouse, as this will enable us to continue to ensure that our members are able to access financial planning assistance on a truly national basis and across a broad range of financial planning topics.

"It is very important to us to be able to continue to partner with an organisation which is clearly capable of supporting our members no matter where they may reside and no matter what their background.

"We look forward to further building upon our relationship with Lighthouse and ensuring that our members are able to secure quality service and consistent professional financial advice."
