Why your Will is important

One of the first steps to take in safeguarding the long-term future of your child is to make a Will. A properly structured Will ensures your family member is provided for and protected when you are no longer around.

Most people with developmental disability do not have legal capacity to own assets, manage larger sums of money or make a Will.  That’s why it’s important to take into account their future needs through a trust in your Will.

It’s essential to obtain professional advice from experts familiar with the legal implications of intellectual disability for both the individual and parents.

We offer parents and other family members advice, expert guidance and referral to trusted lawyers and other professionals to help plan a safe and secure long-term future for your child ensuring lasting peace of mind.

Before we knew about Future Living we were anxious about Shelly’s future. We are very grateful and relieved to find such a wonderful organisation that really will provide for her when we can’t.

I can’t thank you enough for your guidance so far. I must confess you have well and truly turned this (NDIS) sceptic around.

I really love working with Future Living. It is great to work with such a dedicated team who genuinely care about their clients. Even though my work does not put me in direct contact with clients, the team always makes me feel like the work I do is helping them to provide a better level of much-needed support in the disability community. It is very rewarding for me.
