ENABLE Trustee Service

The ENABLE Scotland Trustee Service is a specialist company which manages trusts for people who have learning disabilities as well as their families and carers. The Trustee service  offers practical support and guidance on planning for the future. Lots of parents who have children with learning disabilities want to leave money to their son or daughter. Often they are not sure how to go about it.

This is where the ENABLE Scotland Trustee service can help. By making a Will and taking some extra simple steps to set up a Trust you can make sure your child will get financial support and protection when you are no longer around to provide it. 

For some useful information and guidance, please see our factsheets here​.

Why use ENABLE Scotland's Trustee Service
ENABLE Trustee Service is a specialist company which manages trusts for people with learning disabilities, their families and carers.  Each trust is administered on an individual basis on behalf of the beneficiaries.   ENABLE Trustee Service is the trustee of the Trusts and our Trustee Service Manager runs the service from day to day.
Many professional advisors such as solicitors and banks provide trustee services. However we may be a better choice because:
  • We understand the needs of people with learning disabilities.
  • We have a Board of Directors who support ENABLE Trustee Service and give guidance to the Trustee Service Manager.  The Board is made up of volunteers with a wide range of expertise including parents of people with learning disabilities, solicitors, a retired social worker and the chief executives of disability organisations.  They all give their time and expertise for free.  
  • Any surplus made by ENABLE Trustee Service is reinvested by ENABLE Scotland.  This allows us to provide more services for people with learning disabilities and their carers.
  • We do not set a minimum investment amount.
  • We employ an expert tax adviser
  • We take independent expert investment advice.
  • We offer a personalised and proactive service.
We understand that you may wish to appoint a family member or friend as a co-trustee along with ENABLE Trustee Service.  This can provide a personal input to management of the trust and take the burden of running the trust from day to day away from the co-trustee​.​
