Also known as 'Trusts for children receiving damages', CPR21.11 Trusts are an alternative solution for holding damages awards made to children under 18 years old.

Traditionally the Courts have opted to keep the funds “in Court”. This has become less attractive in the last few years as a result of very low interest rates.

Private Trusts and Professional Trustees

Wrigleys often advise personal injury solicitors and clients to apply for the funds to be held outside of Court in a private trust.

Wrigleys provide a complete service to facilitate this including the following elements:

  • Establish a trust and trust document.
  • Prepare supporting documents to submit to Court for a private trust application.
  • Attend Court as a witness when required to explain the private trust proposal.
  • Act as a professional trustee working closely with your client and their family to ensure the funds are held in the child’s best interests.
  • Enhance the schedule of loss by providing a witness statement of the past and future costs of the professional trustee’s involvement (irrespective of who that trustee is).

Members of our team regularly speak at professional conferences and write articles on personal injury trusts, vulnerable beneficiary issues, Court of Protection and care fees issues.
