Leaving a gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your will

We don’t know what the future for carers is going to look like. Gifts in wills mean we can be there for carers - today, tomorrow, for however long they need us.

How to leave a gift in your will

Many people like to leave specific gifts in their will; how you leave your money in your will is completely up to you. You can leave a percentage of your estate (1% or more), a specific cash sum or even a specific item such as a car or piece of jewellery. Talk to your solicitor further about making a will.

If you would like to leave a gift to Action for Carers Surrey, all you will need to do is provide your solicitor with Action for Carers’ registered address and charity number:

Action for Carers Surrey
Coniers Way
Charity number 1116714

Make changes to an existing will

If you already have a will, but would like to add a gift to Action for Carers, then you will need to make a codicil. A codicil is a legal amendment to a will for minor changes, such as adding or increasing a gift to a charity. Like a will, a codicil needs to be signed and witnessed. Your solicitor will be able to send you a codicil form.
