Help! Looking for UK resources for my partner with ADHD who can't cope with admin, legal and money matters and who's frustrated at every turn by companies insisting they will only deal with him and that other people can't do things on his behalf.

My partner lives in England and has ADHD. He can manage to do his daytime job but not anything on top of it, he therefore runs into problems with tax, council tax, statutory repairs, utilities, bills and banks. I have ADHD too, so am of limited help, but can be of some help. The problem is that even if I can get a bit of free time to help or make calls on his behalf, or pay someone like an accountant to do it, a lot of companies/organisations will only deal with him. We can't get round it by getting married as the paperwork for him getting divorced falls into this same problem. Are there legal or other routes we could pursue to enable someone to deal with these matters for him? Are there organisations which could help us?
