Katie’s asset protection advice provides a legal edge to autism expo

The eyes of the world are set to be on Katie Birch in September when she makes her debut as one of the youngest keynote conference speakers at the South Yorkshire Autism Fayre.

She’ll be sharing the stage at the four-day event with high profile figures that include Dr Temple Grandin, internationally renowned speaker on autism from Colorado State University, Chrissy Meleady MBE, CEO of Equalities and Human Rights and Dr Carrie Grant, vocal coach, TV presenter and session singer.

The South Yorkshire Autism Fayre – which is now in its fifth year – has attracted a stellar line-up of speakers.

Katie, a private client advisor in our wills and probate department, has been invited to speak on the importance of protecting assets for the benefit of people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) to ensure they have life-long care and protection.

She said:

“Being invited to speak at such a prestigious event is an amazing privilege for me.  Parents and carers want the very best protection and provision for children, young people and adults with SEND. I’ll be explaining the trust and will options available to address these issues and provide lifelong care.”

This year’s South Yorkshire Autism Fayre is set to take place virtually due to the pandemic and will be broadcast worldwide over the web. It is organised by Sparkle Sheffield. More information can be found at www.southyorkshireautismfayre.co.uk

As well as being a key member of the wills, estates, trusts and elderly client services team at Graysons, Katie also helps spearhead much of the firm’s fund-raising activity. She works closely with Bluebell Wood, Sparkle, St Luke’s Hospice and other charities. She has provided free wills advice sessions and hosted events highlighting the importance of powers of attorney and trust arrangements.
