Can your legacy change the world? Yes it can.
Changing the world for one child by leaving a gift in your will towards Home-Start Norfolk’s work would be an amazing legacy and would take far less than you might think.
Not everyone thinks about leaving a legacy to a charity. We know that loved ones and friends come first but if there was a small percentage left over (it doesn’t have to be a large amount at all), we promise to use it carefully and effectively on your behalf.
The work we do with fragile families and vulnerable children is about keeping children safe and making families strong. We believe that every parent should get the support they need to give their children the love and care that is so important. We know that adverse experiences in childhood can have a devastating effect on children for the rest of their lives.
If you choose to leave a legacy to help our work we will always respect your kindness and ensure your gift lives on in the area of your choice. Simply make a note with or in your will as to how you would like to support and we promise we will follow your wishes. You may, of course, prefer to keep that private and you can do that by letting us know directly in writing.
We recommend you see a solicitor when writing or amending any will or legal document.
We are sincerely grateful you are considering Home-Start as a charity you might help in this way; legacies are a huge source of support for many charities.
For you, a legacy is a way of ensuring you make a difference to the issues you feel passionately about.
For us it is about turning the private passion for our own children into a public passion for all children.
If you would like to alert us to your intentions to leave a legacy, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is not a promise to us, just an alert to your current wishes, which may change in the future.
