Making provision for vulnerable people
I have really been enjoying making the most of my IPW membership lately (that's the Institute of Professional Will Writers!) and, in particular, up-skilling in the important area of how to make provision for vulnerable people.
On Tuesday I was fortunate enough to attend an excellent webinar and training session with the Chair of the IPW, Sue Ioannou. The course covered lots of different aspects about making provisions for vulnerable people, such as making a deputyship application (similar to a Lasting Power of Attorney application) via the Court of Protection for a relative who has lost mental capacity due to an illness such as dementia, to making provisions in a will for a child who will require round the clock care even when the parents are no longer around to give, or fund, that care.
It's a complex, fascinating subject and I was, as always, thrilled to be able to increase my knowledge and move forward with the confidence, knowing that I have the expertise to advise clients that may find themselves in these predicaments.
