The National Autistic Society has teamed up with Hove a law firm to support potentially vulnerable people with autism.

Renaissance Legal of Dyke Road, has joined forces with the autism charity to help individuals and families with wills and trusts.

The firm specialises in providing legal services to families and carers of disabled and vulnerable individuals.

Philip Warford, managing director at Renaissance Legal, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be partnering with the National Autistic Society to provide this important service and we’re looking forward to helping the families, carers, and individuals the charity supports.”

He said it is ‘vital’ that potentially vulnerable individuals with autism are supported with their finances and that parents and carers of people with autism understand their options.

Alastair Graham, Director of fundraising and commercial development at the National Autistic Society said: “We hope that this new service gives families the right tools and some peace of mind to plan their futures.

“Renaissance Legal are leaders in their field and the advice they can provide will make a huge difference to autistic people and their families in need of this information.”

It is hoped that the partnership will provide parents, carers, and autistic individuals with access to specialist legal advice through a dedicated telephone service.

The National Autistic Society is the Uk’s leading charity for autistic people and their families, and aims to transform lives, change

attitudes, and create a society that works for autistic people by providing support, information, and practical advice.
