About this event

When a child reaches the age of 16, parents and carers lose the authority to act on their child’s behalf. This can be particularly worrying if the child is living with a condition that will make it difficult for them to look after their own welfare and finances.

Key learning:

  • Steps to take to protect children’s interests as soon as they turn 16
  • Differences between powers of attorney and guardianship
  • Consequences if a parent loses capacity and steps to take to minimise the impact
  • How parents can ensure that their children are cared for after death.
