Thinking about a future when you are no longer around to support your child can be daunting for parents and is particularly difficult when a disabled or vulnerable child is involved. This can lead to worry about how your child will manage without you and how this change may affect them.
Some of the issues families may encounter are:
- An inheritance affecting entitlement to vital benefits and services
- The person inheriting not being able to manage their money or being susceptible to financial abuse
- Planning where a child will live
- Choosing people to look after a child (guardians), if they are under the age of 18 and choosing people to manage the inheritance (Trustees)
We are offering a free informative guide via email to help families understand the issues they may face and what can be put in place to protect a disabled or vulnerable child.
We often meet families via seminars run alongside the Charities and Partners we work with. However, we understand that not everyone has the time to attend events and also due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic all seminars are not currently going ahead. We have therefore taken the vital information provided in our Planning for the Future seminar and created a series of emails to ensure you have the important information you need to put in place the right plans for the future.

Sign up for free using the form and over a two-week period we will send you five emails. These will cover what you need to know about planning for the future to protect your loved one. Once you have received all of the emails there will be the opportunity to speak to a member of our team with any questions you may have.
We specialise in working with families and carers of disabled and vulnerable people. Our team has built its excellent reputation on understanding the needs of parents and carers – all of whom are dealing with complex, often challenging lives, where it’s vital that they can understand their options.
We are proud to be the trusted legal partners to Mencap, the National Autistic Society (NAS) and Sense. Take a look at this helpful video by Mencap about planning for the future.
