FAMILIES and carers are invited to an event to find out more about making a will.

Charity Mencap will host a Planning for the Future event at Cathedral Discovery Centre in St Edmund House, Edinburgh Road, Landport.

The event will provide free information on how families and carers can ensure that someone with a learning disability is taken care of when they die by making a suitable will or setting up a trust.

A Mencap spokesman said: ‘When you have a loved one with a learning disability, it is important to have measures in place to ensure a secure financial future for your family.

‘This seminar is an ideal place to get started – you will be able to find valuable information and legal advice on wills and trusts, as well as gaining peace of mind.’

It takes place from 6.30pm to 8.30pm on September 25.
