Hi, my name is Julie Schwarz and I run Mencap Trust Company Ltd.
I wanted to let you know that families make life settlements in to the Mencap Trust they have set up (our youngest beneficiary is 8 month old). Parents, grandparents, wider family and friends can place funds in to the trust once it has been set up.
Funds over £10k are invested with Investec (we benchmark investment performance 6 monthly).
How each trust is managed and used depends on each beneficiary. A decision to build a fund that could become the down payment on a flat is a very exciting one.

Or call the Trust Office on 020 7696 6932 if you find it easier to chat through things.
