Writing a will is the only way to ensure your wishes are met after you’re gone. It’s a last chance to remember people and causes you cared about in life, and can help to take away some stress for family members at an already difficult time.
We have partnered with Bequeathed to enable you and your family members to create a will for free. The process is simple:
- Complete an online form through Bequeathed.
- Your form is sent to a solicitor.
- The solicitor will then create the final document and send this to you.
- You can have a 30-minute video call with a solicitor to discuss your particulars and to check the details.
If you would like to meet with a solicitor face-to-face, we also partner with Edinburgh-based legal firm Blackadders. They offer a free 30-minute consultation on preparing your will, and other legal support such as Guardianship and Power of Attorney.
How to leave a lasting legacy to VOCAL
Once you’ve made provision for your loved ones, leaving a gift to a charity is a wonderful way to acknowledge the positive impact of a good cause close to your heart. Remembering VOCAL in your will can make a real difference to the lives of unpaid carers in Edinburgh and Midlothian. Your gift can help ensure that our carers have the support they need.
You may choose to leave VOCAL a specific cash sum or percentage of your estate. Either way, we most gratefully accept your thoughtful support for unpaid carers into the future.
If you already have an existing will…
You can leave a gift to VOCAL by adding a codicil to your existing will. A codicil simply adds a new instruction, without the need to change the terms of your current will.
If you do not yet have a will…
We invite you to use our free will writing service, offered in partnership with online will writing provider Bequeathed. Drawing up a well-considered will means your loved ones are taken care of and your wishes met.
