Lancashire law firms unite to relaunch Solicitors for the Elderly group

A network of local law firms have teamed up with the University of Central Lancashire to help reinvigorate Lancashire and Cumbria’s Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) group.

SFE is an independent, national organisation of over 1,600 solicitors, barristers and chartered legal executives who provide legal advice to older and vulnerable people.

Members are regulated by their respective professional bodies and must meet strict membership criteria to join.

Law firms Harrison Drury solicitors, Birchall Blackburn Law, and Roland, Robinsons and Fentons LLP Solicitors are among those aiming to boost the regional SFE group.

The group is looking to put on more events to share knowledge with other professionals that work with older people and other vulnerable clients.

A relaunch event will take place in October featuring a presentation and Q&A session with Tim Farmer, a national expert in assessing mental capacity. Delegates will also have an opportunity to network with other professionals and health and care experts.

Jane Huntley, regional co-ordinator for SFE and law lecturer at UCLan, said, “I’m excited to be working with our local solicitors to ‘relaunch’ the Lancashire and Cumbria SFE group. Our local members will be able to meet each other and drive forward good practice in our work with elderly clients and their families.

“The scope of Tim’s talk will be relevant not only to SFE members; it will be of equal interest to other professionals who work with older people, such as accountants, financial advisers, and charity, health and social workers. The meetings are open to all and I look forward to a lively and productive discussion.”

The event takes place on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at UCLan’s Preston campus, with registration and refreshments from 2pm.
