Every month we hold free legal clinics in Kingsbridge and Dartmouth, and in May and June will be holding a clinic Salcombe Library.
We specialise in helping people make provision for their family when they die, we draft Wills, advise about Inheritance Tax liabilities and help executors to carry out their duties after someone has died, we also help resolve any disputes that may arise in connection with a Will or estate. As a result, we are often talking to people about death and dying which can be a difficult topic to discuss.
In March we hosted a Compassionate Friends awareness session and Robyn from St Lukes Hospice taught us about their Compassionate Communities Scheme and how to be a Compassionate Friend. A Compassionate Friend is someone who looks out for others and “makes a difference” to those with a life limiting illness or affected by loss. The session was informative and interesting and everything we learnt will help us when we are supporting people to make decisions about what will happen to their finances and possessions after they die.
Make a Will Week 2019
The Compassionate Communities Scheme is just one of the ways that St Luke’s Hospice is working to help people in our community. St Luke’s provides such a valuable service to anyone who is diagnosed with a terminal illness and will provide support and assistance to help them and their family and friends to provide them with the best possible care and support whether that is in the hospice or in their own home.
We are proud to be taking part in St Luke’s Make a Will Week for the third year running. We are donating our Will appointments between 13th and 17th May, instead of paying us to draft your Will you make a donation to St Luke’s Hospice.
