After consultation with our Elevate Carers Group, the Harrow Mencap Engagement team organised a legal advice session for local carers. 

The session allowed the people we support and others from the community to come and ask their questions to legal professionals including Vikram Manek a lawyer from Walter Wilson Richmond Solicitors, Angela Cook from the Citizens Advice Bureau and Thomas Hobbs from our Advocacy 1st team.

The event was busy and well attended, and the carers were able to get answers on issues such as benefits, wills, Power of Attorney, Court of Protection, Deprivation of Liberty and Deputyship.

One carer who attended said the event provided "a lot of useful information. There's so much to learn."
