June was International Pride Month, a month dedicated to recognise freedom, equality and most importantly to celebrate love.
Matthew Gamman is one of our Trustee’s based within Auckland, and as a proud member of our newly created Diversity and Inclusion working group, he is dedicated to ensuring Public Trust remains an equitable environment for all stakeholders and is championing the ideology of widespread inclusivity and education surrounding the rainbow community at Public Trust. Here is what he has to say about Pride at Public Trust and his mahi in this space.....
"Dementia cases are expected to double by 2050, yet very few New Zealanders have a plan should the time come when they can no longer manage their affairs.... Yet it’s estimated that only 17% of New Zealanders have an enduring power of attorney (EPA), based on data from Public Trust."
“Leaving things until the last minute is a bad habit many of us are guilty of. Which is why the Public Trust is asking people to get in early…. We tend to think we all have plenty of time. It's often not until something happens or there's some sort of event, that we take action. Waiting for things to happen is tempting fate."
