Leaving a gift in your will

Remembering The Link in your Will is one of the kindest and most meaningful ways you can help us.

Once your loved ones have been provided for, please consider providing for children and young people who have to struggle with emotional distress and mental health problems.

 How do I leave a gift in my Will?

There are three main ways to leave a gift in your Will.  Your solicitor or financial advisor will be able to check over everything for you but it may be helpful for you to consider the options below in advance.

 

  • A Residuary Gift is the gift of either all, or a share of, what is left in your estate after all other gifts to family and friends (plus any taxes and expenses) have been paid.
  • A Pecuniary Gift is a gift of a stated amount of money which is left to a named person, charity or other organisation.  Inflation can reduce the value of these gifts over time, so they should be regularly reviewed.
  • A specific Gift is a gift of a specific item, like a piece of jewellery, furniture or property, rather than a sum of money.  The item must be described precisely and the name and address of the person or organisation to whom the gift has been left must be provided.
