Remembering Carer Support Wiltshire in your will does not mean excluding family or friends.
You can easily include everyone and everything that matters to you, providing security for loved ones and your chosen charity.
Why is a Will so important?
Most of us assume that our loved ones will automatically inherit, but that isn’t always the case. A properly written Will is the only way to ensure that your wishes are followed.
How do I write my Will?
We recommend that you use a properly qualified solicitor or Will writer. Although most Wills are straightforward, it pays to have them written professionally.
How much will it cost?
The cost can vary depending on how complex your Will is, and it may be worth asking for more than one quote. Most Wills are relatively inexpensive, and it’s a small price to pay for your peace of mind.
Are gifts in Wills tax free?
A gift to a registered charity like Carer Support Wiltshire is exempt from inheritance tax, and could also reduce the amount of tax paid by your other beneficiaries.
How do I leave a gift to Carer Support Wiltshire?
Please ask your solicitor to include us as a beneficiary, including our registered charity number (1092762) and name and address: Carer Support Wiltshire, Independent Living Centre, St Georges Road, Semington, Trowbridge, Wiltshire BA14 6JQ.
What sort of gift can I leave?
This is entirely your decision. Some people leave a fixed amount of money which is called a pecuniary gift and some leave a specific item. Others leave a residuary gift which is a proportion of whatever is left over after your loved ones are taken care of.
What difference could my gift make?
Every gift in every Will, however large or small, makes a huge difference to the lives of those who are looking after a loved one and need support. These are just some of the ways your gift could help.
