FREE Mencap Wills and Trusts events - NEW DATES FOR 2013

Hi Mums,

My name's Katrina and I work in the Wills and Trusts team at Mencap. I wanted to let you know that we have now confirmed all the dates and locations for the Planning for the Future events taking place throughout 2013.

We know it can be difficult to plan for the future of your child. Mencap can help make things easier by offering advice and suggestions about making a will, so you can be sure your child with a learning disability will get the financial support they need when you are no longer around.

At Mencap, we understand that parents and families worry about how their loved one with a learning disability will manage their financial affairs when they are no longer around - and are often concerned that a large amount of money may put them in a vulnerable position.

Families may also be keen to ensure that their loved one with a learning disability continues to receive their means-tested state benefits, but still enjoys any family inheritance.

So, if you have a child or family member with a learning disability, then come along to one of these FREE 2 hour seminars for families and carers, with information and advice on wills and trusts provided by a specialist local legal professional.

The next seminars will be taking place in the following locations:

North East – March 2013
East Midlands - April 2013
Wales - May 2013
Northern Ireland - May 2013 (TBC)
East – June 2013
London – June 2013
South East – July 2013
South Central – September 2013
South West – October 2013
West Midlands – October 2013
North West - November 2013

For specific dates and locations of events taking place in your area, please visit www.mencap.org.uk/pffe

These seminars are always very popular, so please book your place(s) as soon as possible. All places and venue details will be confirmed in writing 2 weeks before the event.
