Leave a legacy to Norwood in your will

We need to be here for future generations, and by leaving a gift to Norwood in your will, no matter how large or small, you will be helping achieve this.

We believe that being able to benefit others beyond our own lifetime is a comforting one for many. By leaving a gift to Norwood, you can ensure that your support continues to improve the lives of future generations of vulnerable children and families, children with special educational needs and adults with learning disabilities.

Please also know that any gift we receive is greatly welcomed. Whatever the size – be it £100 or £1 million – we will ensure that it’s put to maximum use to support the thousands of people who use our services every year.

Your generosity could be a lasting testimony and will help to safeguard the future of Norwood and the people we support.

Why leaving a gift to Norwood means so much

Norwood depends on the money we receive through people leaving us a gift in their Will. Without legacies, we simply couldn’t deliver the range and quality of services that we offer.

As a result of the gifts we receive, we can, for example:

  • Support children and families to cope better with bereavement through our counselling services.
  • Enable children, who are struggling to learn, to remain in mainstream schooling through our range of holistic therapies.
  • Give greater independence and choice to adults with learning disabilities by offering them appropriate support and accommodation to meet their needs.

If you believe that no generation should be without Norwood’s support, help us to secure the future.

How to leave a gift to Norwood

Making special provision for Norwood in your Will is really quite simple, but it should be included in a professionally made Will. If your Will is already prepared, we can provide advice on wording a codicil.

We would be delighted to arrange for you to visit our services to see our work first hand and to find out how your gift would make a difference.

There are three ways you can leave a gift

Residuary – A Residuary legacy is when you give the residue or balance of the value of your estate or a percentage of the residue or balance of the value of your estate.

Pecuniary – This is a specified sum of money, decided when your Will or codicil is written.

Specific – This is when a particular item of value is left to Norwood. It includes stocks and shares, proceeds of life assurance policy, property, furniture or jewellery.
