At Cairn Trust Management we are committed to delivering a high quality and personalised service.
We wanted to use our experience to provide a person-centred approach to trust management. An approach that actually puts the individual’s needs first.
We start by getting to know the beneficiary and the important people in his or her life. Then we create a personal management and spending plan, and set regular reviews. The overarching aim in our planning process is to make sure we use funds in the short, medium and long term to improve the beneficiary’s quality of life.
