Announcing a new TEAM: Where Together Everyone Achieves More

Posted on: August 7th, 2017

Leading regional law firm Coffin Mew has today announced that it is to collaborate with Hampshire Cricket Supporters’ Club, 1864, to create a TEAM, where Together Everyone Achieves More.

This endeavour is intended to support those living with as well as those impacted by dementia, mental health and neurological conditions across Hampshire.

Working together, Coffin Mew and 1864 will deliver a meaningful partnership that benefits the local community, consolidating their respective endeavours into one streamlined approach throughout the county.

At 1864, this will include, but is not limited to, the following key areas:

  • Producing co-branded leaflets around relevant legal matters which provides basic advice and signposts people to Coffin Mew for specialist and personalised support.
  • Attending training sessions, memory cafes and other events attended by and run through 1864.
  • Engaging Coffin Mew staff and business associates to forge links with local sports clubs to establish more community sports partnerships, building more opportunities for local memory days.

Annabelle Vaughan, Partner and Team Leader of the Court of Protection Team and Wills, Trusts and Probate Team at Coffin Mew, “We are really excited to develop the partnership between 1864 and Coffin Mew. The Court of Protection Team will be hosting education seminars through 1864 on topics such as the importance of Lasting Power of Attorney, deputyships and what it means to be a deputy, eligibility for funding in relation to care fees and wider capacity issues such as testamentary capacity and gifting.

“For those living with and impacted by dementia, mental health and neurological conditions, there are a wealth of considerations – some of which can be hard to digest and understand, or just plain scary. We want to work with 1864 to make information more readily accessible, and to reassure people in need that help is available at a time when they may feel most vulnerable and alone.”

Simon Young, Chair of 1864 said, “This is a wonderful partnership that is not only based upon the 1864 programme of #Hope@Heart, but is a firm commitment to develop and grow the programme by one of the region’s leading Court of Protection Teams.

“To work together with Coffin Mew as our exclusive legal partner is a sign of the level of support that we want to provide for individuals, families and community groups. We both agree that those living with and those impacted by dementia, mental health and other neurological conditions deserve care, support and guidance from people who have expertise and a devotion to inclusion, opportunity and hope.”
