Did you know that you can make a gift to small local charities in your Will?
Why gifts in Wills matter
After providing for your loved ones, a gift of any size can make a real difference to a small charity such as ours.
After providing for those you care for, please consider leaving just a small proportion of what's left over to help Find a Voice provide the training and equipment that people with severe communication problems and learning difficulties need to live full lives and be able to make choices about their futures.
Each and every gift, regardless of size, counts. For example, just £50 will purchase a specially adapted toy that can help a small child understand how to use a switch (the first step to using a communication aid) and £600 can provide software to adapt a standard iPad computer to be able to 'speak' for a person with little or no speech.
We appreciate that leaving a gift in a Will is a big decision and we promise to respect you and your choices.
Our promise below outlines our commitment to you.

Different ways of giving
There are two main ways of leaving a gift:
1. Residuary gift - you can choose to leave a proportion, or the whole of what is left in your estate once you have provided for your loved ones.
2. Pecuniary gift - also known as a specific gift. A donation of a fixed amount.
If you have already made a Will.
If you decide you would like to change your Will, in most cases you can do so by making a simple addition to your existing Will. This is called a codacil. This supplement overwrites existing instructions without the need to revoke or rewrite the whole document.
If you have not yet made a Will.
If you do not currently have a Will you may need to see a solicitor. Although you will have to pay a fee, you will receive sound professional advice and can be sure that your wishes are honoured.
