A legacy can make a significant difference to the lives of people we support
A legacy gift toward the work of The Kingwood Trust
Autism is a lifetime matter - and anything you feel able to leave in your will, after consideration of family and friends, will be crucial to the longer term continuation of the special work for which Kingwood has gained a high reputation. Voluntary funding has always been essential in enabling Kingwood to open up new opportunities within the community for the people we support. Looking to the future, we want to continue to pioneer development that enables life opportunities to be extended and transformed.
Stuart is a 29 year old man with autism. Kingwood has been supporting Stuart to live independently, working closely with his parents. This has drawn on earlier work in which Kingwood pioneered a person-centred approach for supporting adults with autism, and has more recently developed ways to break down barriers to involvement in the community. Kingwood is currently developing a new approach towards training adults with autism in life skills, something that’s key to extending their scope for community activity and for work. Looking to the future, as further advances are made in the understanding of autism, Kingwood’s particular strength will be in building on this work to show how adults like Stuart can directly benefit and see further improvements in their life opportunities in the longer term.
We know the majority of people will already have made their own personal will, often with the advice of their solicitor. It would be inappropriate therefore for Kingwood to offer advice on will making. However you may feel able, after you have considered your wishes for family and friends, to support Kingwood’s work through your will. In that case some basic information may be useful.
Kingwood’s legal title and registered address:
The Kingwood Trust
If you wish to add a provision to leave money to Kingwood this should be possible through the addition of a simple codicil, rather than requiring a new will to be drawn up. Your solicitor will be able to advise how this can best be done in relation to your existing will.
