Excellent service from start to finish.

Mr Grassick

Paul was polite and friendly and explained the complication of a power of attorney and enduring power of attorney which seemed a minefield to me

Mr Bather

Jo understood immediately the problem I had and acted on it quickly which has brought about a very satisfactory and speedy conclusion. Jo was very helpful, friendly and reassuring.

Mrs Duggan

Tricia Carter has a long association with Sheffield Mencap and Gateway and we're very glad to know her. For many years she has met regularly with groups of parent carers during the day and in evenings to answer questions about ways of leaving money and property through wills and trusts to people with learning disabilities. The families I work with always get a lot from her sessions and she is careful to always give impartial, sensible advice. I have only ever had extremely positive feedback from family carers who've come to the sessions and I've learnt a lot over the years from her too.

Sheffield Mencap and Gateway

Tricia Carter provided me with an exceptional service in a very timely manner, continually demonstrating an exceptional knowledge of legislation, guiding me through the options available to me and my circumstances. I would recommend Tricia and the professional services she offers to everyone.

Tricia is always very pleased to receive a 'thank you letter' from a client at the conclusion of a matter. Amongst these have been "many thanks indeed for the immediate help and support", and "thank you for looking after us at this time in a friendly and compassionate manner."

Paul was extremely helpful in advice given for a difficult situation.

Paul has assisted us greatly and sympathetically during an extremely challenging time.
