Leave a gift in your Will

Gifts left in Wills (also known as legacies) have made a huge difference to NASS. In fact, last year 59% of all income was from gifts in Wills, so we really wouldn’t be able to continue without them.

They have helped us to improve our services, launch new projects, and fund vital research into better treatments for AS. However, many people are still unaware that they can help us in this way.

We know thinking about writing a Will is a very personal topic. That’s why we’ve launched two new partnerships that will help you think about your wishes with professional support.

We’ve joined Remember a Charity, a group of over 190 charities working together to raise the profile of legacies among the public and encourage supporters to consider leaving a gift in their Will.

We want to raise awareness of how gifts in Wills can help us to answer one vital question – how do we end the eight-year delay in diagnosing AS? Watch the video below to find out our answer, and how you can help.

NASS is proud to partner with the National Free Wills Network, giving supporters and Members the opportunity to meet with a local solicitor and have a simple Will made or updated for free.

Around 30 million people in Britain do not have a Will – that’s about 70% of the population. An up to date Will is the best way to ensure your wishes are respected and your loved ones are looked after. If you don’t have a will, your assets may be distributed according to the law rather than your wishes.

How does it work?

1. Simply get in touch and let us know that you would like to write a Will for free. We’ll pass your details on to the National Free Wills Network.

2. You’ll be sent a pack in the mail within 3 weeks, enclosing details of local participating solicitors.

3. Contact your chosen solicitor, ensuring to mention the National Free Wills Network. The solicitor will draw up your simple Will. You won’t have to pay – as a member, NASS pays the cost of the Will at a special discounted rate.

There is no obligation to leave a gift in your Will to NASS, but we really hope you choose to do so. Every gift, no matter the size, will help us to continue our work and transform the future for people affected by AS.
