Legal Clinics


Occasionally carers can encounter legal issues that can be very daunting. Lanarkshire Carers Centre offers carers a free 20 minute session with a solicitor from NewLaw Scotland to discuss guardianship, power of attorney and will-writing. Carers can also receive legal advice on what to do after a death, as well as guidance on your assets and the cost of long-term care, even if you would just like to find out more about any of these legal services and why they are important.

Please Note: Carers need to have a Carer Registration Card to access this service.
