Parent Carers Legal Support
About Parent Carers Legal Support
Parent Carers Legal Support has been developed through many years of experience in the field of Adults with Incapacity. We first started working closely with Parent Carer Groups and their supporting professionals through our associated initiative, Solicitors for Older People Scotland.
Details of Offer
Parent Carers Legal Support (PCLS) has been set up as a contribution toward supporting, informing and guiding parent carers through the process of Guardianship.
We will assess all for Legal Aid entitlement.
All first interviews by telephone, video call, or in person are free and we assess all clients for legal aid – if you qualify we will get legal aid for you. Parent carers’ lives are busy and sometimes restricting. If it is more convenient we are happy to consult with you after hours at a time that suits. There is no extra charge for this.
We are also happy to deal with occasional queries from Guardians who may need simple guidance on decision-making from time to time.
