Financial Planning Corporation (FPC) has been providing financial planning and investment management services to successful business owners, senior executives and personal investors for the last 30 years, helping their clients to secure their future and protect what’s important to them. The firm works collaboratively with a network of professional advisers in all sectors, including solicitors and accountants, with a specific focus on estate planning, tax management and business and succession planning.
As well as supporting clients’ own personal fundraising efforts, FPC is committed to making a difference, both in its local community and further afield.
Over the years FPC has supported a number of projects to help people across Merseyside live as well as possible with dementia. The initiative is very close to the team’s hearts, as many of their clients’ lives have been touched by the disease.
Managing Partner, Moira O’Shaughnessy says: “Advice on gifting and philanthropy is at the heart of FPC’s financial planning offering. Our philosophy is to encourage our clients to be generous to themselves and others and take the opportunity to donate to charitable causes where possible. Working with programmes like House of Memories allows us to practice what we preach.”
In 2012 FPC sponsored House of Memories’ dementia awareness workshops for family carers and in 2014 the memory suitcase loan service. In 2017 they supported the Christmas memory box campaign where 125 memory boxes containing items which help to trigger memories for people living with dementia were delivered to residential care homes across the North West.
In 2018 FPC supported the Sense of Summer memory baskets which were designed to enable carers and people living with dementia to enjoy summertime memories together and to stimulate conversation about the past. With FPC’s support, five baskets containing multi-sensory items relating to the great outdoors were distributed to nominated care homes in across Liverpool City Region.
Carol Rogers, Director of Engagement for National Museums Liverpool said: “FPC’s support has been incredible –their dedication to making a difference in their community and helping House of Memories reach more people across Merseyside and the North West is wonderful. I look forward to our continuing relationship.”
