On 23 September 2021, NCWQ hosted our Empowerment session on planning for tomorrow, presented by Jade Duncan from Clinton Mohr Lawyers. Thank you to all who attended. With all the stories we heard about how it can go wrong, one message was loud and clear: planning is key! Proper preparation can help minimise fights and problems coming up down the track, or help ensure your loved ones are well looked after.
