We all want to leave something behind for our loved ones, so family and friends will of course be the first people you consider when planning your Will. If you would also like to leave a gift to Turn2us, it is vital your Will is carefully worded, or properly amended, to ensure your wishes are observed. This should be done in consultation with your legal advisor.
We can only carry on growing and providing help for so many if generous people continue to support us in this way
If you already have a Will, it is easy to make additions or changes to it. Leaving a gift to a charity can be done with a Codicil form (PDF file size 403kb) signed in the presence of two witnesses - and it could mean that your family will have to pay less inheritance tax.
After you have provided for your loved ones, remembering Turn2us in your Will is very easy to do. Whatever the size of your gift, it will be a legacy of good and you will be helping us to be there when future generations need someone to turn to. You could be helping a mother caring for her disabled son; a widow struggling to make ends meet; or a family whose life has been turned upside down by redundancy.
Looking to the future
Turn2us is a charity with big plans. Last year, over 4,800 people benefited from our direct financial grants and support. The Turn2us helpline and website was developed in 2007-2008 and now, just a few years on, our online services receive over four million visits from people experiencing financial difficulty each year.
Legacies from our supporters are a vital form of funding. These developments have only been possible thanks to the amazing people who have left gifts to Turn2us in their Wills. We can only carry on growing and providing help for so many if generous people continue to support us in this way.
We understand that your Will is a personal matter and we will never ask you how much you are intending to give.
