Carers of all ages throughout Rhondda Cynon Taf attended an event hosted by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Carers Support Project at Mountain Ash Golf Club on Friday, November 30th, to celebrate Carers Rights Day.
Alison Huggins, a Wills, Probate & Asset Protection Solicitor from Howells Solicitors addressed the carers providing advice on a comprehensive range of legal subjects that might affect them including Lasting Power of Attorney, Wills, Court of Protection and many more including the topical issue regarding Care Home Fees.
“This is the third year Howells Solicitors has been invited to attend the RCT National Carers Day event,” explained Mrs Huggins. “We aim to provide as much general advice as possible during the presentation and then meet with any Carers that want to speak with us about specific issues relating to them afterwards.”
Mrs Huggins continued, “Carers provide an incredibly important role in society. Carers UK, estimate that carers save the economy £119 billion per year, an average of £18,743 per carer. We provide a comprehensive range of services that benefit both the carer and those they care for and welcome the opportunity to provide free advice at events such as this one organised by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Carers Support Project.”
