Dear Member, and to all who are visiting our website,
We are delighted to announce that we have reopened the IPW Trinity Point Office albeit we have taken all relevant and significant steps to ensure our team are safe.
Our IPW Risk Assessment and Risk Assessment Travel Path were implemented prior to their arrival back in the office and we continue to monitor their personal safety.
Consequently, the office will open between 8:00 am and 9:00 and close at 5:00. This means we can stagger the start and finish times for the two members of staff who will be in the office Monday to Friday. We will therefore continue operating our Coronavirus work from home policy alongside working in the office whilst the 2 Meter Social Distancing rules still apply.
We appreciate it is a small move, but it is a shift in the right direction, and I am delighted to say that our Member services remain steadfast.
However, due to the ongoing restrictions we will not be making any home visits’ but will review this in line with government updates. We will continue reviewing the COVID -19 situation and collectively send our thoughts and best wishes as we all continue adjusting to life under the Corona microscope.
For those of you visiting our website because you are looking for a consummate professional Will Writer please continue to use the Find a Will Writer tool.
Chair and Head of Training, IPW
THE INSTITUTE OF PROFESSIONAL WILLWRITERS
The Institute of Professional Willwriters (IPW) was founded in 1991 as a self-regulatory body to safeguard the public from unqualified practitioners and unethical business practices and has become established as the recognised professional body regulating and promoting the profession of Willwriting in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
As well as being part of a recognised network of professionals, becoming a member of the IPW can help your business stand out against competitors, demonstrating the high standard of your services.
Membership is available to those who pass the IPW entrance examination, or those possess an equivalent and relevant qualification in Wills and Estates from a recognised qualifying body. For more information about how you can become a member, please click here.
In order to ensure that our members are kept up to date with legislation and industry developments, we require them to annually refresh their knowledge through a programme of Continuing Professional Development. This also enables them to retain their practising certificate.
All IPW members also have Professional Indemnity Insurance cover of a minimum of £2 million for each Will written. In order to ensure that our standards remain high, it's mandatory to comply with the IPW Code of Practice which is approved by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute under its Consumer Codes Approval Scheme.
