Remember us in your will
Leaving a gift in your will to Contact a Family is a very important form of support, as it will help us always reach parents and families with disabled children who need our help.
Five reasons to make a will
1. Protect your loved ones
Without a will, or with a will that is not up to date, you could leave the fate of your loved ones uncertain. Don't assume your partner, even if you are married, will inherit everything.
2. Help your favourite causes
Once you have taken care of those close to you, you might like to consider leaving us a legacy to continue our work campaigning to improve public services for disabled children; providing vital financial, legal and other specialist information and supporting the families of disabled children.
3. Prevent legal problems after your death
If your will is out of date, or badly worded, it could be very costly and traumatic for your loved ones to sort out.
4. Care for your children
If you have young children, making a will enables you to decide who will look after them should the worst happen.
5. It's not expensive
Putting your affairs in order using a solicitor is not as expensive as you may think. Many charge a flat fee for making a straightforward will.
Steps to making your will
1. Use a solicitor
2. Decide whom you wish to benefit
3. Appoint your executors
4. Keep your will safe

Leaving a Legacy to Contact a Family
Why your gift is so important to us to plan for the future and how you can find out more.
The technical wording explained for when choosing to leave a gift in your will for Contact a Family.
Make a Pledge
Gifts left in wills are really important to Contact. However even if you haven't made a will, making a pledge to do so in the future would really help us to find out about your future intentions.
Pledges are not legally binding so by filling out this form you are not committing yourself! You are simply allowing Contact to confidently estimate future support for their cause.
Leave a Legacy
If you have already made a will but you want to leave a legacy to a charity you can make an addition or change it without re-writing your current will. This addition is called a codicil.
To leave a legacy to Contact please download the codicil form below and take it along to your solicitor.
Please note however that this form is not legally binding on its own and has to be part of your main will. We advise you to seek the advice of a solicitor.
If you have any questions about leaving a legacy to us, please contact Contact directly – they will be happy to discuss this with you.
