Give to us in your will

A gift (legacy) in your will to the Law Centre will help ensure people will be be able to access justice in the future. We are dedicated to ensuring people who cannot afford a solicitor can get free legal advice and representation.

“I don’t know what I would have done with the Law Centre’s help…I had nowhere else to turn”

We are reliant on funding from grant funds, legal aid and donations from people like you and we’re incredibly grateful for the support we receive from those who share our values and support our work. As a registered charity, gifts from wills help us plan long term and secure the future of the law centre for its community.

 

Tax Efficient Giving

You may be eligible to receive a reduction in inheritance tax when leaving a gift in your will to charitable causes like Avon and Bristol Law Centre. Leaving a gift in your will to charity is completely free from inheritance tax, which means a bequest to the law centre will be deducted from the value of the estate before any tax liability is calculated.

We strongly advise you consult a solicitor when making or revising your will, to ensure it reflects your wishes and is legally valid.

To leave the law centre a gift, you will need to know our charity details, which are:

Avon and Bristol Law Centre, 2 Moon Street, Stokes Croft, Bristol, BS2 8QE

Registered Charity No. 1059022

Below is a guide to the text you would need to insert in your will.

“I give to Avon and Bristol Law Centre, registered charity numbers 1059022 ),2 Moon Street, Stokes Croft, Bristol, BS2 8QE the sum of £X, free of inheritance tax, for its general charitable purposes.”

If you’re worried that time will erode the value of your gift, please ask your solicitor for advice on how you might arrange it to keep pace with inflation.

If you have already made your will and would now like to include a gift to Avon and Bristol Law Centre, you can complete a codicil form – click here to download. A codicil is a supplement to a will and allows you to amend your existing will without drawing up a new one.
