  • Leaving a gift in your Will to Family Action: A lasting legacy

    When thinking about your future, how do you want to be remembered? A loving friend? A supportive parent? A caring grandparent? These are all things to think about when writing a Will. Did you know that once you’ve taken care of loved ones, you can pass on something wonderful to less fortunate families and support them to nurture the same relationships you value? By leaving a gift in your Will to Family Action, you’ll help parents and grandparents facing issues like domestic abuse, mental health and living in poverty. Your gift will give them the strength to raise a safe, healthy and happy family. Your gift will help keep families together.

    How a gift in your Will helps

    Over the past 150 years, families have changed a lot. However for those most vulnerable families, many challenges they face, such as social isolation, poverty and mental ill health persist. That’s why Family Action have been working hard to continually innovate to meet the changing needs of modern families.

    Gifts in Wills left to Family Action have enabled us to;

    • Play a major role in establishing Social Work as a profession, protecting children’s rights and safety.
    • Support pregnant women at risk of post natal depression with trained volunteer befrienders, acting early to help them give their babies the best start in life.
    • Innovate and test models to turn around the lives of vulnerable children in care and on the edge of care. We work with birth families and young people themselves.

    And much much more…

    Giving families, children and young people the best starts in life is important to us all

    A Will may be one of the most important documents you ever write. It enables you to decide what happens to your money and possessions once you are gone. It means you can provide for your family and those close to you. Once you’ve taken care of your family and friends, please consider leaving a gift to Family Action, and have your legacy live on.
