Leaving a gift in your will

When it comes to making a will your friends and family come first. Once you know they will be looked after, you may also wish to leave a gift in your will to Shannon Trust. Your gift, whatever the size, will help support people in prison to transform their lives by learning to read in years to come.

How do I make a will?

As a will is a legal document it’s a good idea to have it written by a solicitor. They will be able to advise you in a way that means your wishes will be carried out after you’re gone. One way of finding a solicitor to draw up your will is via Find a local solicitor via The Law Society

Before you go to meet with the solicitor to make your will you might find it helpful to think about:

  • What you own -  including property, money, insurance, pensions, cars and shares
  • Any liabilities you have such as mortgage, credit card bills and loans
  • Who you would like to leave gifts to
