The Hampshire Safeguarding Adults Board is pleased to announce the launch of the Let’s Plan Ahead (LPA) Campaign, a multi-agency initiative which aims to raise awareness and drive the uptake of Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare.
The HSAB website is hosting the campaign on new, dedicated webpages found here: https://www.hampshiresab.org.uk/lasting-power-of-attorney/
These pages are intended to provide a range of resources to support both the public and professionals to understand the legal arrangements around making a Lasting Power of Attorney, and to share this information with their family members, within staff teams and within the wider community. There are specific resources related to making a Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare as the uptake of these is low nationally and every adult should consider having this in place regardless of their age. The resources include short films and information documents which can be downloaded and printed.
We encourage all residents of Hampshire to visit the site and consider making a Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare. Once you have these arrangements in place you can rest assured that somebody you know and trust, who knows your wishes, will be able to make decisions in your best interests.
