This event is hosted by The Good Grief Trust to help normalise grief and get more people talking openly about death.

SFE Director, Emma Gray shared her story of dealing with bereavement following the death of her husband and encouraging people to #SpreadSomeWarmth.

This year, SFE (Solicitors for the Elderly) are urging people to have, what can feel like difficult, intimidating conversations, about death and dying to help them plan better for the future and make sure their wishes are properly communicated with family and friends.

M&P Commentary

Charanjit Toor, a Court of Protection Solicitor at Mullis & Peake, said:

“As we approach the winter months, many older and vulnerable people may be feeling lonely and could be struggling with the loss of a loved one, so it’s important we maintain contact and offer support where possible. When talking death and thinking about your wishes, it’s always best to chat with a specialist solicitor who can help set your requests and offer guidance on important things to consider, such as the wording of your Will or how to plan for inheritance tax.”
