Many people with a learning difficulty are eager to work and engage with their local community, but find there are few opportunities for them to do so. Brunswick addresses this basic need by offering a productive work place with satisfying work, training opportunities and a constructive social environment. You can help Brunswick continue to grow for future generations by leaving a gift in your will.

What can I leave?

What you choose to leave is up to you. As with any donation to Brunswick, no matter how big or how small it is, it will help. It doesn’t even have to be money – things like tools and equipment can be just as useful. You also could choose to leave an item to Brunswick, such as jewelry, artwork or an antique, if you prefer. When considering whether or not to leave a legacy, it may be helpful to think about what other provisions you may like to make to family, friends first, then consider any residue. You could leave a percentage of your estate, or a specific cash sum. It really is your choice.

Brunswick is always growing and changing as new ideas come along and our workers develop. People like you, who want to leave a charitable legacy will play a crucial part in helping Brunswick safeguard its future.

Do I need a new Will?

That depends. If you already have a will, you may be able to add a codicil. A codicil is a document which can be added to your existing will if you would like to make a small change. This means you do not need to rewrite everything. 

If you do not currently have a will and wish to make one, it is advisable to consult a solicitor. The Law Society provides good information about this, or you could visit your local Citizen’s Advice Bureau.
