In your will

Our vision for the future is a happy, healthy, safe and secure childhood for every child and young person in Scotland – you can be part of that vision by leaving a gift in your will.

If the time is ever right, please be assured that each gift, whatever the size, means a lot to us and will allow us to make a real difference.

It’s easy to leave a gift in your will and it is a positive way to ensure the people and causes dearest to you are looked after in the event of your death. Putting a will in place is also a sensible way to reduce or completely avoid inheritance tax which might be due by your estate. Read our making a will page for more information.

Here is an example of how a legacy donation could help:

Every year, hundreds of children in Scotland suffer from sexual abuse or harm. Last year, Children 1st worked with more than 200 children, young people and their families who were impacted by abuse. To read about the difference we make to children and young people read Jess's story.

If we are to continue to support more children, we need to continue to raise more funds. A donation of £5,000 would pay for 200 children to benefit from our abuse and trauma recovery services.
