Free Seminar For Parents of Children with Special Needs next Wednesday

Being a parent of a child with special needs brings great joy, love and challenges. Unfortunately, many parents are not fully aware of the serious financial and legal implications for a son or daughter with special needs.

There is a fre information meeting addressing these challenges facing parents. The seminar is designed for parents whose child is under the age of 18 and is on Wednesday evening, January 22nd from 7:30 to 9:00 in the Silver Springs Hotel.

The “Special Needs Trust Planning Workshop” is being led by Allan Cuthbert, the founder of “Financial Wellbeing”, a company dedicated to assimilating all the difficult to find information on various special needs grants, tax, financial and legal implications into an easy to understand format.

The theme of the evening is the need to establish a Special Needs Trust to ensure that a child doesn’t lose their entitlements and can maintain their quality of life after their parents have passed away.

It will also detail rarely claimed entitlements and tax credits. Allan will present information on special needs Wills and how to choose the right Guardians and Trustees. He will also explain the need to write a “Letter of Wishes.”


The key focus of the evening will be the importance of establishing a Trust for a special needs child and how to fund the Trust from entitlements.

Allan has a niece with Down syndrome and it shocked him how hard it was for parents to access information that is vital for the wellbeing of their child. “I decided that I wanted to make a difference and so I set up Financial Wellbeing in 2008. I have dedicated myself to helping ensure a better quality of life for children with special needs and their families.”

Allan is a regular radio presenter on financial issues regarding disability. He writes for 38 different charities, parents association and organisations. In the last 6-months he has also given over 20 presentations on Special Needs Trust Planning to various charities around Ireland.
