Planning for the Future Wills and Trusts Events

Are you worried about how your family member with a learning disability will manage financially when you are not around to support them?

Mencap have organised FREE 2 hour seminars for families and carers, with information and advice provided by a specialist local legal professional.

We believe their financial care tomorrow is as crucial as it is today

Are you unsure about how best to leave your loved one with a learning disability money in your will? Planning ahead can make all the difference to those close to you, and provide you with peace of mind.

At Mencap, we understand that you are probably worried about how your loved one will manage their financial affairs when you are no longer around and concerned that a large amount of money may leave them in a vulnerable position. You may also be keen to ensure that they continue to
receive their benefits but still enjoy their full inheritance.

The Wills and Trusts team provide parents, families and carers with free booklets about writing wills and setting up trusts for the benefit of a loved one with a learning disability.

We also organise free seminars around England, Wales and Northern Ireland.  The free two-hour seminars offer vital, specialist legal advice and give families
and carers a much needed opportunity to get answers to those difficult questions – that often make the process seem so daunting.
