Thinking of the future

 

Thinking about the future can be very daunting. No one likes to think about what will happen when they are no longer here, but when you have children it is even more important to plan for the future. Almost all parents worry about their children and what will happen to them. Writing a will, and quite often a trust as well, helps you do the best you can to protect your child’s future.

 

Doing these simple things can give you the peace of mind that your son or daughter will get the financial support and protection they need when you are no longer around to provide it. You can protect your child from financial vulnerability by making a will.

 

We have some film material with advice from our legal department and families who have already made wills and trusts.


 

We have also prepared some factsheets with helpful information for families about planning for the future. These are:
