What’s On!

NDIS Coffee Club

Special workshop: Long term care for your child –
Making a will + Disability Trusts

Monday 5 November 10.00 am – 12.00 noon

Tim Chate, a solicitor from Intellectual Disability Rights Service, is returning to talk in more detail about making wills and disability trusts.  These are both big topics and were touched on only briefly in July.  His first visit was very informative, and he has a respectful and gentle manner with all, so we expect this workshop to be every bit as helpful.

Explore your options now to be prepared for the future.

This is a Coffee Club meeting very pertinent to the needs of all carers and people with disabilities.
