Making a will, and keeping it up to date, makes sense. It means that your wishes are known, and will be followed. It is your chance to choose exactly what you want to leave, and to who you want to leave it to. You can provide for those closest to you and – if you wish – also support the work of Winston’s Wish. A gift to Winston’s Wish in a will is always free of inheritance tax. So leaving us a gift also reduces any tax your family or other beneficiaries may have to pay.
Where do I start?
If you need a starting point have a look at our plain English guide to making a will and leaving a gift in your will.
I already have a will
If you already have a will and have now decided that you would like to include a gift to Winston’s Wish, your solicitor will simply attach a written instruction called a codicil. It’s as simple as that.

The number of bereaved children, young people and families grows day by day. Every year we reach over 40,000 children; a gift in your will can help Winston’s Wish help support even more bereaved children when they need it most.
