Safeline services are free and long-term. By remembering Safeline in your Will, you will be helping and supporting survivors of sexual violence for years to come.
‘This has been a life changing experience and without counselling from Safeline, my quality of life wouldn’t have improved. I feel happy and excited for what is to come’.
Why should I make a Will?
If you have not made a Will, we strongly advise you to do so. When someone dies without leaving valid Will, their property must be shared out according to Government rules.
If a Will is not legally valid, the rules of intestacy decide how the estate is shared out, not according to the wishes expressed in the Will.
How do I leave a Gift in my Will to Safeline?
We very much hope that, after taking care of your family and loved ones, that you feel able to remember Safeline in your Will. We strongly advise that you consult a legal professional to ensure that you follow all legal formalities and create a valid Will. You can find a solicitor in your area through the Law Society or by phoning 020 7242 1222.
There are several ways to leave a legacy gift to Safeline:
- Donate a specific portion of the remainder of your estate once all other bequests have been made and your loved ones looked after, and debts have been cleared (a residuary gift). Example: I give X% of the residue of my estate to Safeline (registered charity no. 1070854) of 6A New Street, Warwick, CV34 4RX (or subsequent address) for its charitable purposes.
- Donate a specific sum of money in your Will to Safeline. Example: I give £X to Safeline (registered charity no. 1070854) of 6A New Street, Warwick, CV34 4RX (or subsequent address) for its charitable purposes
If you already have a Will and do not wish to re-write it, you are able to add a Codicil to the Will, specifying a gift to Safeline. We recommend that this is done with the support of a legal advisor.
‘Thanks’ Safeline for walking through the darkness with me, it’s so lovely to see in colour again’.
Your legacy gift, however large or small, will make a difference to the lives of those affected by sexual violence.
