Event description

Description

As your child approaches adulthood, are you worried about their finances?

Would you like to protect your child's interests as they become an adult?

How do you safeguard your child's affairs as they move into adulthood?

As your child moves towards adulthood, it's important to know their rights and entitlements as an adult with special educational needs. It's a daunting experience!

We welcome Adele Stewart, a specialist solicitor from award winning law firm HCB Solicitors, who will improve our understanding in order to protect our children as they move into adulthood.

We will go through all of the options available to you and your children, and explain what option will be appropriate in certain circumstances. We will cover:

  • What options are available for you as parents of children where capacity may be an issue;
  • Where a Lasting Power of Attorney may be an option;
  • What a deputyship is and whether it is an appropriate option for you;
  • The process of applying for a deputyship;
  • What your role is once you're are appointed;
  • Do you need to update your Will, and what sort of provisions are you able to make for your children to protect their interests.

We will of course be taking questions on the night, and so please do come along armed with all the queries and concerns you may have!
