Vulnerable Beneficiaries Cheshire 

We work in conjunction with organisations and parent groups, dedicated to protecting vulnerable beneficiaries. We hold regular informative webinars and seminars, both in person and by remote video channels. Our team of qualified experts offer help and guidance in relation to estate planning options, designed to look after your loved ones in the future. 
We can advise on the benefits of a vulnerable beneficiary discretionary trust and how it will protect them for the future. Ensuring their inheritance is protected from long-term threats and the loss of means tested benefits. 
Unfortunately, there may also come a time in a person’s life where they lose the capacity to handle their health care and financial matters. In this difficult and often emotional scenario, that person will need someone else to take responsibility for their important affairs. 
If you need to support a loved one who lacks mental capacity with their finances and or health affairs, our Court of Protection team can assist you. We understand that supporting a loved one who has lost mental capacity can be extremely challenging. Our team ensure to act with sensitivity at all times, simplifying the associated legal processes as far as possible. 
Court of Protection applications 
If a loved one is no longer able to manage their own affairs and finances, the time may be right to make an application to the Court of Protection to appoint a Deputy. 
Making an application to the Court of Protection can be a complex and time-consuming task, so it is important to have the right support and guidance on side from the outset. Our Court of Protection team can work alongside you, advising you on the necessary process for making an application, helping to ensure there are no potential delays which could disrupt matters. 
Court of Protection Deputies 
After making an application to the Court of Protection, you may be appointed as a Deputy to act on behalf the person without capacity. 
You may be appointed as either a Health and Welfare Deputy, a Property and Financial Affairs Deputy, or as both. The type of Deputy that is most suitable will depend on the specific needs of the person who lacks mental capacity. 
We can support clients who are acting in the role of a Deputy, explaining the duties and processes involved and ensuring that you are aware of your responsibilities.
