Leave a gift in your Will to ensure 'the most important work' continues to be done.

We help and support vulnerable families.  Last year we supported over 97,000 children, young people and families in the UK to have access to our expert play workers, trainers and coaches to help build better lives.

A gift in your Will supports us to be there when they need us most. Please contact us to request further information about the charity and the leaving a  gift in your Will. 

Can I decide how I would like my gift to be used?

Gifts that are 'unrestricted' (i.e. that we can use wherever they'll make the biggest difference) are the most valuable to us as they can be used where they're most urgently needed.

You can also leave a gift in your Will to a particular area of our work such as contact centres, campaigning, education and training or a certain geographical area. 

What type of gift can I leave?

We are grateful for every gift we are given.  There are three main types of gift you can leave:

  • A residuary legacy is a percentage of whatever is left over from an estate after debts, funeral expenses, administration costs, and all other gifts have been paid. This can be any percentage you like. Many people choose this type of gift as it ensures their loved ones are taken care of first.
  • A pecuniary legacy is a fixed sum of money that can be any amount, big or small. When it comes improving the lives of children, young people and communities, every gift counts.
  • A specific legacy is a gift of a particular item, such as property or an item of jewellery

Is it important that I write a Will?

Yes, a Will can ensure that when you die, your loved ones are taken care of and that your wishes are clear to all. It can also make things simpler for those you've left behind.

A Will covers everything from what you leave to family and whether you'd like to remember a charity such as Children's Links

In the absence of a Will, the government will decide how to share your estate. They may not do so in a way you would have chosen to do.

Do I have to tell you that I've left you a gift?

No, you don't have to but If we know whether you intend to remember us in your Will, we can plan better for the future. Let us know by  filling in our pledge form online
