This event is open to carers residing in or caring for a person in Midlothian and/or Edinburgh.

About the event: Do you care for a child with additional support needs? This session is designed to help parents navigate through the legal process of Power of Attorney or Guardianship when their child is reaching or has become 16 years of age. This can appear to be a daunting time for some parents, however, Martin Monaghan, Head of Civil Court Department at Caesar & Howie (founders of Parent Carers Legal Support) will deliver a step by step account of what happens and when.

The Handy Guide for Parent Carers will be available to all attendees as a supplementary publication to this presentation.  A PDF copy of the presentation will also be available on completion of the very short online feedback form following the presentation.

There will also be an opportunity to take up a free initial consultation session on Guardianship or Wills and Trusts via Parents Carers Legal Support at a later date.

(There is also a “Planning for the future – Wills, Trusts etc.” session on Tuesday 21 November 2023, 6pm to 8pm. To book on to this session, please click here.)
