Age UK Wirral is committed to being there for older people who need us. If you decide to leave a gift in your will to us, you will be supporting us to make life better for older people on the Wirral.
Every single gift is vital to Age UK Wirral and we appreciate any gift you may choose to leave us after taking care of your family and friends. Whatever the value of your gift, it will go a long way to help someone who needs us.
How to leave a gift in your will
Having a will and keeping it up-to-date helps ensure that your wishes can be respected and your property and assets benefit people and causes you really care about. We would always recommend that you speak to a qualified professional such as a solicitor, when making or amending your will.
Your solicitor will be able to advise you on the required wording to carry out your wishes. If you wish to leave a gift to Age UK Wirral in your will, all you need is our charity details below:
Age UK Wirral
141 Park Road North
and our registered charity number 1034510
We would be grateful if you could let us know if you have included us in your Will
If you already have a will
If you already have a will and you want to include a gift to Age UK Wirral in it, there may not be need to rewrite it. You can ask a qualified professional such as a solicitor to add an amendment (called a codicil). As a general rule, if the change you wish to make is quite small or simple, you can use a codicil, and if the change is more significant or complex you should make a new will.
What kind of gift can I leave to Age UK Wirral?
You can leave a specific sum of money or an item such as jewellery or a piece of art. Or you can leave a share in, or all of, what's left of the value of your estate after family and friends have been taken care of. The advantage of leaving a share (also known as residuary gift) is that it remains the same over time, and you won't need to change your will to keep up with inflation.
What if I don't have a will?
Age UK Wirral provides information and details of things you need to consider when making a will at any of its centres.
We are unable to provide legal advice or assist with drawing up or altering a will at our offices but we do hold regular legal surgeries at Wirral Point, please ring 0151 482 3456
