Will makers, such as Margot Kennedy, travelsaround the community to help people sort out their legal and health forward planning, so that their families don’t have to deal with messy problems and complications when a person dies.

Margot is the Acting Manager of the NSW Trustee and Guardian Wollongong Branch . She and her team usually travel as far as Eden to provide Estate Planning Services to various communities .  

 They provide advice on subjects such as wills (who you would like to inherit your estate and look after your children), and executors (the person or organisation which will carry out the wishes of your will) and information  on the benefits  of preparing a Power of Attorney and Enduring Guardian.

“We haven’t had much of chance to get back into communities because of Covid-19 over the last two years. But we’re looking forward to providing our pop-up locations to meet  various community groups to provide our important service” Margot said.
