One way you can support families now and long into the future is by leaving a gift in your will. Some people think that wills are just for the wealthy but, in fact, it’s important that we all make provision for our families.
The good news is that writing a will needn’t be complicated, expensive or difficult. Providing you think through your plans for the future, and speak to a solicitor who understands your personal circumstances, it should be relatively straightforward.
After you’ve made sure your family is cared for in your will, you may want to continue supporting your favourite charities and causes through a legacy or a bequest.
“I know from personal experience what it’s like to go through hard times. Having Care for the Family standing by me was so important. That’s why I want to remember them long into the future.” – Simon
Care for the Family has produced a free information booklet to guide you through the process of leaving a legacy gift. You can receive your ‘Guide to Wills and Legacies’ by post, or download it here.
