You may know or have known someone who is a carer who has been supported by The Carers’ Support Centre. Perhaps you have been cared for or maybe you are a carer yourself.
A gift in your Will to The Carers’ Support Centre 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 to local carers. By leaving a gift in your Will to The Carers’ Support Centre you really can help us build a better future for carers.
What is a legacy?
A legacy is a special gift left in your Will which is a crucial source of our funding and plays a significant role in giving carers a brighter future. In addition, 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, give us 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
What to do next
Whilst we understand that your Will is a private matter, it would help us greatly to know if you are planning to leave a gift to us. If you are thinking of leaving a legacy to The Carers’ Support Centre, we would be happy to talk this through with you.
