  • Simple Wills 

  • Discretionary Trusts

  • Vulnerable Persons Trusts

  • Lasting Power of Attorney

  • Court of Protection applications

  • Estate Planning and Probate

If you would like a legal clinic appointment, please phone us on 0114 278 8942 or email us at [email protected].uk   The clinics are usually held over the phone, but if you have difficulties communicating this way please let us know.  

We also run occasional group workshops offering general legal information.

For some legal advice matters you may need to seek a Solicitor, you can find information about the types of lawyers from Legal Choices. Sheffield Carers Centre are unable to recommend any firm to provide legal services, but if you require a Solicitor you may find it helpful to look at the Solicitors Register.
