Choice Not Chance
Its good to see that the Ministry of Justice has launched a public awareness raising campaign aimed at highlighting the importance of planning for the future. The #ChoiceNotChance campaign encourages people to make an active choice on an issue that many people avoid thinking about, and take out Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) and ensure they have a legal Will.
The campaign is made up of three strands;
- Making a Will;
- Making a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)
- Signing up to the Organ Donor Register
Having a LPA and a Will in place is an important part of planning for the future and gives people peace of mind, knowing that their choices will be respected. Encouraging people to sign up to the organ donor register ensures people’s choices do count.
