Gift in your Will

We may not expect it to happen but three of five of us will become carers at some point in our lives. Large or small, your legacy gifts will help future generations of carers to thrive in their role and find the balance in their lives, they want to achieve. After you’ve taken care of those closest to you, a gift in your will could help us be there for more carers.

How to leave a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift to Carers First in your will is easier than you might think. There are two main types of gift you might choose – a share of your estate (residuary gift) or a set sum (pecuniary gift). 

We have some suggested wording to add to your Will depending on which one you choose. You can share this with your chosen solicitor or legal professional:

Residuary gift (share of your estate):

“I leave……….per cent of the residue of my real and personal estate to Carers First of Michael Gill Building, Tolgate Lane, Strood, Rochester, Kent, ME2 4TG, registered charity number 1085430; registered company number: 4144820

Pecuniary gift (set sum):

I leave the sum of……….(in words) pounds £……….(in figures) to Carers First of Michael Gill Building, Tolgate Lane, Strood, Rochester, Kent, ME2 4TG, registered charity number 1085430; registered company number: 4144820

A legacy gift will go towards

Reaching more carers, at the earliest opportunity and before they hit crisis point

Enhancing our support to carers to make a material difference in their lives

Securing support for carers in collaboration with others

Let us know if you would like your legacy gift used for a specific purpose or in a certain area, and we will do our best to ensure your wishes are carried out.
