Disabled trusts

Disabled trusts are created to look after a disabled person in the event that their main carers are no longer able to meet their care needs.

At Withers we have extensive experience of advising families on this kind of structure. Our lawyers are available to discuss everything from how the trust will be administered to making it more tax-efficient. Having seen many different scenarios we will draft a bespoke trust that suits all the details of your particular situation. For example we can advise on how payments from a trust might affect entitlement to state benefits. And as a global firm we are adept at handling any international aspects.

A strong support network can be of great benefit to the families of disabled people and we run periodic events bringing together clients and our team to share thoughts in an informal setting.
