A Gift in your Will

Your Legacy, a Child's Future

Leaving a legacy gift in your Will can help us to change a child’s life. It's a really good way to make a truly life-changing difference for future generations of children by helping to ensure they get the care and support they really need.

We are proud of our guarantee that 100% of all funds raised are spent on the needs of disabled and terminally ill children. Not a penny is spent on anything else. You can even choose to help a child in your county.

Types of Legacy

Residuary Gift - A share of your estate

Residuary Gift - A share of your estate

This is given as a percentage or share of your estate once all specific gifts, debts and expenses have been met. A residuary gift is particularly valuable because it maintains ‘real value’ in line with the rate of inflation. It’s a popular way to leave a legacy gift because it ensures your loved ones are taken care of and you don’t need to keep changing your Will as circumstances change.

Gift in Kind - A specific item

Gift in Kind - A specific item

This is a bequest of particular items or assets that are not in the form of money. This could be property, shares, works of art or other valuable items.

Monetary Gift - A specific sum

Monetary Gift - A specific sum

A gift for a specified sum of money (e.g. £5,000). As inflation rises and living costs increase, monetary gifts are subject to lose value and therefore you may wish to update this gift periodically or consult your solicitor on ways to protect the value of a gift of this kind.

How to Leave a Legacy Gift

Including a Legacy in a new Will

Including a Legacy in a new Will

We strongly advise that you consult a solicitor when making your Will, but we can provide a copy of our ‘suggested wording’ for guidance on how to include a gift.

Amending an existing Will to include a Legacy Gift

Monetary Gift - A specific sum

If you have already made your Will, the easiest way to include a gift is to use a Codicil Form. Then all you have to do is return it to your solicitor for it to be added to your Will.

What Families & Children Say...

Words cannot express how life changing the safespace has been for Megan and all the family. Megan has slept all night everynight since having the safespace. Megan feels secure and enjoys being in her own space. Parents no longer have to get up several times each night to check on Megan, so are no longer deprived of sleep enabling them to cope much better during the daytime.

The provision of this wheelchair allows him to access all aspects of life, acedemic and social with a degree of independence. He is Acorns Young Ambassador and this wheelchair allows him to be so pro active. All of the Newlife people are working together; the application was so straightforward and much quicker than we expected.

Words are not enough to describe what the grant scheme has done for us. Newlife gave us the yes for the car seat within two hours of receiving the application!
