Planning ahead is a crucial part of ensuring your wishes are respected if you were unable to make a decision for yourself. This is a free workshop to help you think about about what you want, what you don’t want and who will speak for you, in a care and treatment crisis.

Main post content

Making my wishes known

This workshop will aim to:

  • Explain why it’s important to record your wishes such as what you would want for yourself in a crisis situation, your preferences around care and treatment and your future choices
  • Learn about setting up a Lasting Power of Attorney and who can help you do this
  • Find out what an advanced statement is and how you can write one up for yourself and ensure others are aware of this
  • Help your loved ones to be sure about what you would want for yourself so they can ensure this happens on your behalf.

Tuesday 25 April, 9:30am-3pm, at We Are 336, Brixton.
