Planning for Adulthood Evening
As part of our Annual Caring Week, we invite you to attend our Planning for Adulthood seminar evening hosted by Seashell Trust.
We know it can be difficult to get answers to the most basic of questions to support the needs of the people you care for and so this evening aims to provide useful and practical information on a range of topics for parents of children/teenagers with disabilities to help them prepare for adulthood.
This unique event will feature informative discussions from some of the region’s leading advisors on the topics of Wills, Trusts for disabled children, benefits and how to access the correct information, advocacy and other support services available in your area.
Discussions and Talks From:
Gorvins Solicitors: One of the North West’s largest law firms advising you on the importance of a properly drafted Will, setting up trusts for vulnerable and disabled children, Powers of Attorney and deputyship orders.
Parents in Partnership Stockport (PIPS): An independent local parent carer forum run by parents for parents, carers, grandparents and family members who have a young person between the ages of 0 – 25 years with a disability or additional needs.
Stockport Advocacy: An independent, not-for-profit organisation set up to provide advocacy support for adults over 16 with learning difficulties who live within the Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council area.
Lorraine Podmore of Richardson Laine: a Welfare Benefits Consultant and director at Richardson Laine who will provide welfare benefits advice including development and management of specialist welfare benefits services across the charitable, statutory and private sectors.
