Once you have considered your friends and family please consider leaving a life-changing gift to the Coroners’ Courts Support Service (CCSS). Making a donation to a charity in your Will is known as legacy giving or leaving a legacy gift. Legacy giving accounts for a large percentage of the income of many of Britain’s best-known charities.
By leaving a legacy gift to the CCSS you could help to make a difference to the lives of others at a very difficult time while helping us to continue and grow the services we offer the community.
If you plan to remember the CCSS in your Will you should seek the advice of a solicitor or other professional advisor. If you already have a Will, it is simple to change it. To learn more about making a Will and to find a reputable solicitor in your local area go to: https://www.lawsociety.org.uk/for-the-public/common-legal-issues/making-a-will/
Please think about including the CCSS in your Will. Every gift counts, no matter how small, and will make a real impact. Your gift could be used to recruit and train new volunteers or to develop the service in a Court that currently does not have the benefit of the CCSS support for families and witnesses. You could help us work towards a future where everyone attending an Inquest has access to independent emotional and practical support.
