Gregg Latchams’ Heledd Wyn attends Learning Disability Sector Deal launch at the House of Lords

30 July 2019 |

Heledd Wyn, our Associate Director and Head of Long Term and Elderly Care was personally invited to attend the launch of “Improving Outcomes, Enhancing Care: Assistive technologies and a case for a Sector Deal for the learning disability sector” at the House of Lords in London on 15th July co-hosted by Hft and Tunstall Health Care

The aim of the day was to discuss the ever-growing funding crisis that is affecting the sustainability of adult social care and how the sector and government must come together to successfully negotiate a learning disability sector deal. During this important launch, Heledd heard from a wide range of people including Baroness Jolly and those who need or have benefited from technological and care support.

Heledd has been heavily involved in the care sector since graduating from Bristol University and has developed expertise in estate planning, long term care and asset protection. Heledd also has experience in inheritance tax planning, NHS Continuing Health Care Funding and complex Court of Protection applications.

Heledd is also a member of STEP and sat on the STEP Mental Capacity Global Special Interest Group for six years. She is an accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly and is proud to be a trustee of BRACE – an independent charity committed to defeating dementia through supporting scientific research.

When asked about her day at the House of Lords, Heledd said: “I am hugely passionate about the care sector and have worked on projects conjoined with charities and STEP in the past. It was great to hear from individuals who have benefited from the work of Tunstall Healthcare and Hft.”

“However, if anything this event proved there is still more that needs to be done.”

On Tuesday 15th October, Gregg Latchams will be hosting the “Pragmatic Solutions to Care Problems – What does good care look like and how do we look after the carers?” event at the Mansion House, Clifton Down, Bristol. During this day-long event, attendees will hear from industry experts such as Paul Smith, Forensic Accountant and Elder Financial Abuse Specialist from the Paul Smith Consultancy and John Moore, founder and owner of the award winning Home Instead Bristol North  in Bristol. The key note speaker will be Dr Jane Townson Chief Executive Officer at United Kingdom Homecare Association Ltd

This event presents an opportunity to meet a number of representatives from all corners of the care world and share knowledge, insight and ideas on the current care system.
