emotional support HELPLINE for English-speakers in France

During lockdown many people felt isolated and afraid - but for people living far from home and family it can be much worse.

But for anyone struggling there is an English-language helpline specifically aimed at foreigners living in France. The SOS Helpline is a long-established charity, but could be particularly useful for people struggling with the current situation - or any aspect of life in France. You can find out more information on The Local FR website here. If you need help and support, SOS Help can be reached on 01 46 21 46 46


If you have a home in France, whether it is a holiday home or a permanent residence, Brexit will have been at the forefront of your thoughts.

If you are concerned about how any of these changes may affect you, call us for a chat and we will look at the practicalities of your situation, offer advice – and let you know what changes you may need to make.


As the situation develops with Brexit, we will support you to make sure you are safe, and can continue to live your life here in France without Brexiety.

SOS ANGLO  - helping the English in France
My name is Valérie Roger.



who am i?


I am a French lady based in the Mayenne department and the aim of my business is to help the English-speaking community with their French experience. This may be anything from a simple translation to very specialized secretarial, relocation and administrative work.


My business was born from the love of helping people and a passion for the English language. The business was established 10 years ago, and since then has flourished, as you can see from my client testimonials.


What locations do I cover?


I work in the areas of 53, 61, 35, 50, 72, 85, and 14 but I can travel anywhere in France. My assistance is professional, friendly and I am proud to say that my discretion and reliability are second to none.


Day after day, I try to solve problems, arrange situations and make life easier for the expats or those who own second homes. I am reliable and efficient and  have helped a great many people by solving all sorts of issues that they found too complicated to solve on their own.


For me, no job is too small or too big. I enjoy the challenge of cutting through the red tape and finding the most satisfactory outcome for each of my clients.
