Rethink Trust Corporation

Many carers of people with mental illness worry that when they die, the person they care for might have challenges with their finances. Rethink Trust Corporation understands the needs of people with mental illness. They can give you peace of mind that your loved one can have security regarding their inheritance. Your loved one won't need to be burdened with managing an inheritance on their own, and if they are vulnerable, the inheritance will be protected from third parties.

Our simple, reliable service lets you set up a trust fund for your loved one which can ensure their future  inheritance is looked after. Unlike other providers, we understand the needs of people with lived experience of mental illness.

Because the scheme is run by a part of the Rethink Mental Illness charity, you can be sure that the people charged with making decisions understand the circumstances and needs of people who are affected by severe mental illness.

For nearly 50 years we have brought people together to support each other - we believe that a better life is possible for the millions of people affected by mental illness.

We currently manage around 350 trusts of which over 100 are active. The wishes of the settlors, and the lifelong benefit to people with mental illness is at the heart of everything we do at Rethink Trust Corporation.
