About this event

Future Matters: Wills & Lasting Powers of Attorney Presentation

We know that more than half of UK adults do not have a Will, and that many people are not sure how to make one. We are hoping to help put this right for residents in Islington by hosting our Future Matters “Wills & Lasting Powers of Attorney Presentation”

Join Future Matters Islington for a free online session about how you can get support planning your emergency and future care wishes, financial and legal affairs.


Setting up a ‘Lasting Power of Attorney’

Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs), are legal documents that allow you to choose one or more people to help make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf, should you be unable to do so. LPAs are a simple way of protecting your health, your finances, and the people you trust.

LPAs can be expensive to set up, but the Future Matters Islington service, run by Gentle Dusk in partnership with Age UK Islington, can provide free support to help you put one in place.

Making a Will

Your Will lets you decide what happens to your money, property and possessions after your death. You can write your will yourself, but you should get advice if your will is not straightforward. You must also make sure that it’s valid. A Will is a legal document so it needs to be written and signed correctly. If you decide to make your own Will, it’s best to seek advice first.

How can I get further support following the presentation?

Future Matters Islington offers free one-to-one support for putting in place an LPA and other advance care plans. These will enable you to appoint one or more people to help you make decisions or make decisions on your behalf to do with your health and financial affairs.
