Leave a gift in your will
Leaving a gift in your will is an amazing way you can support the work of Kidscape. As a small charity, these legacies mean a great deal to us, and help secure the future of the charity.
"I want to help to provide the kind of support to young children that was not available to me when I needed help. Abuse will always happen unfortunately, but to help those who suffer from abuse as I did is the least I can do." - Kidscape supporter
How can I leave a gift to Kidscape in my will?
Writing a will does not need to be complicated, but we recommend that you consult a solicitor to ensure your will accurately reflects your intentions as there are two options for you to consider:
Pecuniary bequest – a donation of a fixed sum of money.
Residuary bequest – a gift of all or a percentage of your estate after all other payments and bequests have been made.
The following statement contains all the necessary wording to make sure Kidscape receives your gift, and should be included in your will:
I give to Kidscape Campaign for Children's Safety, 8-10 South Street, Epsom, Surrey, KT18 7PF, Registered Charity Number 326864 (state the % residue or sum of money you wish to give) and request without obligation that it be used at the discretion of the trustees for immediate or future needs.
More information about writing your will can be found on the Gov.uk website.
Can I get help writing my will?
Kidscape has partnered with The Goodwill Partnership to make it as easy as possible for you to write your will. The Goodwill Partnership is a face to face service at home in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. You'll be visited at home by a trained professional at a time to suit you (including evenings and weekends), who will then pass your instructions to the panel solicitor who will provide your will. This will cost £108 + VAT for a single will (the lowest price for a face-to-face will writing service in England and Wales). There is no obligation to leave a gift to Kidscape by using this service, although we would of course be very grateful if you chose to support us in this way.
