In Your Will

In thinking about remembering a charity in your will, it is right that your friends and family will come first. However, many people also like to take time to think about remembering a charity or cause that might be of particular significance for them.

It might be that a charity such as ours has helped directly or just because the services we deliver are important to you.

Leaving a gift to LGBT Health and Wellbeing helps us continue to deliver our full range of services.

Why should I make a will?

Simply, an up-to-date will is the only way of ensuring that those that you care about most are provided for in the way that you wish. This process is not expensive or complicated however it is best that you contact a solicitor to help you draw up the paperwork.

A solicitor will help you in lots of ways including thinking about what assets you have and how you want them to be passed on.

You might also want to discuss issues such as Inheritance tax with your solicitor. There are 3 main ways for you to leave money in
a will:

  • Leaving all or part of your estate, once all other gifts have been made. This might be a percentage of the estate
  • It might be that you want to leave a fixed amount of money
  • It might be that you want to leave a gift or particular item. Examples of this might be property or an item of value that could generate income if sold.

We acknowledge that leaving a legacy from a will is a deeply personal decision.  We can assure you that any donations made in this way will be treated with upmost respect.  If you require any further information about leaving a will we would encourage you to look at the government website www.gov.uk/make-will/overview

If you require additional information about leaving a gift to LGBT Health and Wellbeing and would like to discuss this in confidence, please contact Louise Lewis, Finance Worker louise@lgbthealth.org.uk
