“It’s such a wonderful job that you do and so important as parents just can’t afford specialist equipment and things they really need.  I’m leaving a gift in my will so I can help change disabled children’s lives into the future”

Margaret, Newlife Supporter

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

Eight-year-old Louisa was born premature and suffered a bleed on the brain, leading to a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy which affects all four limbs. 
Louisa needed supportive seating to support her posture and muscles in a sitting position. Newlife were able to provide Louisa with a Jenx Junior chair. Louisa will be in a safe position while feeding, her posture will be supported, she can have a change of position and recline, and she can be moved into different rooms so doesn’t miss out in family time.


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.

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.
