A Will leaves clear instructions that tell people what you want to happen to your assets after you die. It helps make sure that:
- The people responsible for managing your estate know how you want your affairs to be handled
- Any dependants such as children are properly taken care of
- Your assets are distributed in a way that reflects your values and instructions
If you wish to bequeath a gift to Oxfam, leaving these instructions behind in a legal Will is the only way to ensure that your wishes are followed through with.
We recommend that you consult a solicitor or seek legal advice when preparing a Will.
