Why leave a gift in your will?

Leaving a legacy is not only easy, but an incredible thing to do to help others in need.

When it comes to writing your will, it is completely understandable that you will want to look after your loved ones first. But once those closest to you have been provided for, you might consider leaving something to NAPAC too.

Gifts left in a will don’t have to be large amounts. They come in all shapes and sizes – with gifts ranging from £100 to £20,000, from 1% of an estate to 100%, or anything left over after your family have been provided for.

They don’t even have to be money – some people choose to leave an item of value to their chosen charity. It is completely up to you. Whatever you choose to leave, your donation will help us continue to reach the people who need us most in the future.

People will benefit

Leaving a gift in your will is a great way to support NAPAC long into the future.  Although you may never meet them, your legacy can help us ensure that thousands adult victims and survivors of childhood abuse get the support and help they need to leave the impact of childhood abuse behind, grow as a person and enjoy a happier and more fulfilled life, not defined by the trauma they suffered as children.

Your gift will make a difference

NAPAC’s mission is to make a difference in the lives of adult survivors of childhood abuse, through services that support them, by standing up for them, and by spreading our expertise.

Your gift will enable us to strengthen and expand our services, such as the telephone support line, email service, and support groups for survivors of abuse.  It will also help us to increase specialised external training to frontline staff who may engage with adult survivors of childhood abuse in any professional setting. With the help of your gift, we could also deepen our advocacy work helping to improve understanding about the impact of childhood abuse and to seek support from those who can make a difference.

CODICIL INFORMATION AND FORM

If you have already made a will and would now like to include a gift to the National Association for People Abused in Childhood (NAPAC), you may find it easier to fill in a codicil form.

A codicil is a supplement to a will and allows you to amend your existing will without drawing up a new one.

If you need to draft a new will, or wish to make substantial changes to your existing will, we strongly recommend that you consult a solicitor.


What do I need to do?

  1. Complete the codicil form which can be downloaded as a PDF document here, but don’t sign it until both your witnesses are present
  2. Ask two adults (of sound mind) to be witnesses. No-one who is your executor or a beneficiary in your will or any codicil (or anyone married to, or in a civil partnership with, a beneficiary or executor) should be a witness
  3. Sign the codicil in ink, using your normal signature, in the presence of both your witnesses
  4. Ask both your witnesses to sign and complete their section of the codicil (in ink) in the presence of you and each other
  5. Send your completed codicil to your solicitor or the person who is looking after your will
