The Society announces a revision to the assistance
structure for the getStructured programme, a programme that
locks in good legal structures, around a person with cerebral
palsy. Parents will be financially assisted to set up a
legal framework, (i.e. wills, power of attorney, trusts,
etc), around a member with cerebral palsy, to ensure that
future eventualities are considered and planned for.
There are two separate components to the “getStructured”
:Component 1: For families that presently
have no wills, power of attorney, etc., the Society plans
to contribute up to a maximum of $1500 (+GST) of a lawyer’s
bill to set up such a structure.The proviso is that the
beneficiaries of such a structure must include someone who
has cerebral palsy and is a member of the Society. The above
funding will be a “once only” grant.
Component 2: For families that have already
set up a legal structure that benefits a member with cerebral
palsy, a ‘once every 5 years’ grant will be
available for reviewing and altering this legal structure
to ensure it remains relevant. This grant contributes up
to a maximum of $450 (+GST) of the lawyer’s bill for
this service. The same proviso applies as in component 1.
