Making a will is vitally important in ensuring your savings and possessions go to the people and causes you care about. Your will reflects the person you are, the values you hold and shows the love to the people and causes you hold close to your heart.   

If you die without making a will, UK law will specify who inherits your estate (property, personal possessions and money), rather than who you would like it to go. 

By writing a will, you decide who you want to benefit. You can ensure your loved ones and the causes you care about are provided for in exactly the way you wish.

And if you do want to consider leaving a gift to North East Autism Society in your will, no matter how small, it will mean your values live on and you’ll continue to change lives long into the future.

Writing your will

We have joined forces with Remember A Charity and Co-op Legal Services to offer our supporters 20% off the Co-op’s will-writing services and access to free advice and support if you want to write or update your will.

There is no obligation to leave us a gift when using our will-writing services, but we hope that you will consider helping us to support autistic people to have the best future.

If you would like to find out more this offer, please visit Remember a Charity website for further guidance and information, or contact us at [email protected]. 

We suggest that you always get help from a solicitor to ensure your wishes for your family and any charities you support will be clearly understood and recorded correctly. Remember A Charity can also help to find a solicitor in your local area, who will be able to advise you on leaving gifts to charities when making a will. 

I already have a will

If you have a will already set up, you can either make a new will or add a codicil to update your wishes. A codicil is a way to add a gift to your latest will.

You must keep the codicil with (but not attached to) your will. We have a simple codicil form in our free information pack.

If you have any questions about writing a codicil or updating your will, you should seek advice from a solicitor.

If you have decided to leave a gift to NEAS in your will, it would be very helpful to us to know that you have done so to help us to plan for the future.

Completing the pledge form below will allow us to thank you properly, and with your permission, enable us to keep you up to date with the work and news of the Society.
