This September is Remember a Charity Week. It’s a campaign by over 200 charities to raise awareness of the importance of making a Will.
Making a Will is one of the most important things each of us will ever do. Your Will is your chance to take care of everything that’s important to you, starting with your family and friend. Many people believe that writing a Will is complicated, or only for the rich and famous, but in fact it’s valuable for all of us and relatively straightforward.
Why make a Will?
Reduce the burden on the loved ones you leave behind
Protect your assets and help reduce the impact that inheritance tax and residential care fees can have on your estate; protecting your assets for loved ones.
Ensure all your assets are dealt with correctly, with debts paid and items going to the people you wish to receive them.
When making or updating your Will the recommendation is that you should always seek professional advice. Our website has a guide to the different ways you can get started making or amending your Will.
Remember a Charity week is also a chance to talk about the amazing work that charities like ours can do, thanks to gifts left in Wills. We are very grateful to our supporters who consider remembering us in this way.
YoungDementia UK is on a mission to ensure that no-one faces young onset dementia alone. By leaving a gift in your Will you can be part of that mission beyond your lifetime.
