Leave a gift in your will

Leaving a gift to Turning Tides in your will gives the reassurance that homeless people your community will continue to be supported long after you have gone. Our crucial hubs – which provide life-saving services to people who are homeless and having to sleep rough – are particularly reliant on public support. Which is why leaving a gift, no matter how big or small, is an incredible thing for you to do.

Writing a will prompts big personal decisions and your loved ones will always come first. But giving to Turning Tides is one way of leaving a legacy that helps future generations. Leaving money to Turning Tides might also reduce or remove your estate from inheritance tax.

There are different types of gifts that can be left in a will:

Specific gift – you can leave specific items such as property, jewellery or furniture that we might benefit from.

Cash gift – leaving a pecuniary legacy, you are instructing your solicitor that you would like a certain amount of cash to be left to Turning Tides.

Residuary gift – the remainder of your estate once gifts left to loved ones have been shared out and any taxes or debts are paid. In leaving this type of gift you ensure that all your estate is divided up between people and causes of your choice and not left to the government to disperse.

Ensure your will is valid and legal by using a professional will writer or a solicitor. They can explain to you how to ensure the people you want to remember and any charities you want to support are recognised in your will.

Or you could take advantage of our FREE WILL offer. Through the generosity of HD Tribe, Turning Tides has partnered with Octopus Legacy to offer our supporters the opportunity to write a simple will for free. This can be done online in the comfort of your own home.

Sally Legacies

Why Sally is leaving a legacy

I have been involved in the charity for a number of years. I held a stereotypical view of homelessness that I came to realise was untrue. The more people I met who had been helped by Turning Tides, the more I realised that each of us is so very few steps away from homelessness – the loss of a job, breakdown of a relationship or ill health is all it takes to lose your home.

I decided to support the charity by volunteering and donating money. Having worked in the charity sector, I am well aware of the need and difference generous donations from a legacy can make, often making up a significant percentage of a charities income.

I am leaving 10% of our estate in my will to Turning Tides. I have always given to charities so why not continue when I have passed away? Whilst 10% might not seem much it is a great way to give as it will keep pace with inflation.

I am confident Turning Tides will continue to provide such an invaluable and much needed service. I will be contributing to that – even when I have passed away.
