Making a will ensures that everyone knows your wishes for your property, money and possessions after your death.

A will is a legally binding document, and can be made by anyone of a legal age who is of sufficient mental capacity. Without a will, the law decides this on your behalf, and this may not be in line with your wishes. Your will can also cover wishes you have for your children and their care.

Making a will saves time and stress for your loved ones, can help to avoid a long probate process and may reduce the amount of tax payable on the inheritance. It’s important to make sure your will is up to date and reflects any changes in your circumstances.

At Launchpad, we have teamed up with Bequeathed, an online service that provides free legal advice and support in making your will, and makes the process quick and easy for you.

Detailed guidance will help you to consider everything you need to think about when making a will, and to identify any issues where expert legal advice could be valuable. Bequeathed supports you to make decisions about everything from your funeral wishes to cash gifts and executors who manage your wishes after your death. Their helpful guides provide myth busting advice and easy to follow language to make the process easy to understand.

Bequeathed has the added benefit of helping you to leave gifts for good, such as leaving a donation to Launchpad in your will. The process of making a will with Bequeathed is easy, and you are supported throughout as you complete a free online interview, receive tailored legal advice, then receive and sign your will. Bequeathed is good for friends, good for family, good for charity.

By making your will with Bequeathed you will be helping Launchpad by donating directly to us in your will. Gifts in wills support charities like us where the lack of fundraising activities during the Covid pandemic have had an impact on us.

Receiving donations via Bequeathed helps us to continue to provide services to veterans, of which we have supported over 500 so far. Your donations benefit veterans at Launchpad in a wide range of ways including providing accommodation in Newcastle and Liverpool, education and training which allows veterans to retrain into new careers, emotional and wellbeing support including counselling from trained individuals, and the provision of social trips and activities.

Give yourself peace of mind, and get started on your will today. With our partners at Bequeathed, it’s quick, efficient and free.
