Leave a gift in your will

A gift in your will to Southend Carers can be the most powerful way to support local carers who provide unconditional and unpaid care for a loved one. All gifts, whatever size, will offer vital support and will really help us build a better future for carers.

What is a legacy?

A legacy is a special gift left in your Will because it is a gift to charity, this means it is exempt from tax, so it may reduce the amount of inheritance tax for which your estate is liable. All gifts, whatever size, will provide us with vital support. It might be a gift of a few hundred pounds, an item of jewellery, stocks and shares, or an endowment from a memorial fund. Whatever you can afford to leave us – it all counts.

Writing a will

Writing a will is essential to enable you to provide for the people and causes you care about. We understand that your loved ones come first. All we ask, is that once you are happy that you have taken care of your family, you consider our work.

It’s easy to include a gift to us in your Will. However, you should always consult a professional, such as a solicitor or financial adviser.

If you already have a Will, updating it to include a gift to us is quick and straightforward. If you don’t already have a solicitor, you can find one by visiting www.lawsociety.org.uk.
