Sophie and family

Everyone should have a Will.

A Will is the only way to ensure that your wishes are carried out when you are no longer around. Without a will your estate will be divided up in line with the rules of intestacy. This means that you have little or no control over who receives what from your estate.

You should create or update your will:

  • when you have an unmarried partner who should inherit from your estate.
  • when you get married, and your current will is invalidated (in England and Wales) or doesn't include your new spouse (in Scotland).
  • When you have a child and want to appoint a guardian.
  • When you buy a property or receive a large windfall.
  • If you get divorced - your previous will won't automatically be invalidated.
  • When you want to make provisions for step-children, foster children or dependents including pets.
  • If your spouse passes away, and your previous will left the estate to them.

For most people creating a will or updating one is straightforward. Doing it with a solicitor provides peace of mind that your will is valid.

We understand that looking after your family, friends, loved ones and charitable causes is a very personal choice. So, there is no obligation to leave a gift in your Will to CHAS to be eligible to use our Free Will Offer.

Legacy gifts mean so much to us.

If you do choose to remember CHAS in your Will, you will help fund essential care for children and families across Scotland, ensuring that no matter how short a family’s time together may be, it is filled with happiness and joy.

Gifts in wills left by our generous and caring supporters pay for the care that we give to one in every four children.

That’s a staggering amount.

Quite simply, we couldn’t do what we do without these gifts.

By leaving even just 1% of your estate, you could make such a huge difference to the lives of children with life-shortening conditions, and their families in Scotland.
