The Free Money Advice Service has been setup by the government to provide impartial advice on most financial matters but is particularly good on Equity Release. 

Equity Release is a minefield but a necessary minefield! Get it right and older people can raise money on their property - potentially allowing them to afford to stay in their homes for the rest of their lives. Get it wrong and they can accumulate an enormous debt and effectively disinherit their children as the finance company claims their home in order to repay the accumulated loan when they die. The link below may help you decide whether this might be a useful route to go down. However just as importantly consider using a financial adviser.
This is a simple AgeUK Equity Release calculator which will help you find out how much an equity release loan would allow you to raise on your house.

Hitchell Financial Planning

Hitchell Financial Planning have provided us with a fantastic service from start to finish. Sarah arranged a fixed rate mortgage on our property, not only did she keep us regularly informed and make the whole process so much simpler than it would have been arranging it ourselves, she found us better deal than anything we could find elsewhere. In fact, the deal she found us was with a bank that couldn’t match it when we went to them directly. Richard has also found us a great small investment that met our requirements. How much risk we wanted to take was judged carefully and Richard took the time to explain the process. Overall an excellent experience from a company that works hard to save us money, thank you.

I just wanted to say how fantastic Sarah Bird has been, As first time buyers she has taken the whole stress out of what is meant to be one of the most stressful times. Nothing was to much for her and she was extremely prompt and getting back to us with advise and answers to our many questions. I cant thank Sarah enough for the support and guidance she has given us and we will certainly be using Hitchells again for future protection cover and mortgage advise. I will 100% be recommended Hitchells/Sarah to all my friends and family - absolutely fantastic service.
