Leave a gift in your will.

Gifts in Wills, also known as legacies, make a huge difference.

By leaving a gift in your Will, you’ll help fund projects that could help prevent isolation and loneliness amongst older people. Enabling us to continue to provide a safe and secure setting for carers to send their loved ones.

Your gift will make it possible for Age Connects Torfaen to continue being there for vulnerable older people in the years to come.

Making a Will
We are very aware that writing a Will can be viewed as costly, complicated and often involve making decisions which can be difficult and upsetting. Although we recognise these difficulties, it is important to focus on all the positive outcomes that can come from preparing a Will.
Making a will is one of the most important things you can do. It means that you can state the people and the charities that you would like to benefit from your Will. Without a Will, the authorities will decide who inherits and it can take considerably longer to finalise proceedings, whilst also costing significantly more.
Things to consider before making your will:
• Details of your assets, including home and contents, jewellery, car, bank accounts, and life insurance policies etc.
• Names and addresses of family, friends or charities you wish to benefit from your Will
• Names and addresses of those you choose to appoint as Executors to carry out your wishes
• Other considerations, such as funeral arrangements, floral tributes and organ donation
