A will ensures that you get to decide what happens to your property, possessions and money, even who takes care of your dependents. It’s one of the most important things we’ll do in our lives, but we don’t always know where to start!

Our FREE will service is delivered in partnership with Guardian Angel so that you can get this valuable support when the time is right for you. Every will is checked by experts and they’re also on hand to help with more complex requests or any questions you may have.

Many of our supporters have chosen to leave a gift to YMCA Leicestershire in their will, however there is no obligation.

Janet pledged to support YMCA Leicestershire in her will

“I had been supporting The Y for about three years when the time came to update my will. I remembered listening to a talk about leaving a gift to the charity and thought why not?

I really believe in the work that they do with homeless young people and also it excites me that the charity is constantly changing, like the recent children’s home launch and the complex needs work. I think that legacy money can be more fluid and open opportunities that other funding can’t.

“I know the money will be used to good purpose as I’ve seen what has been achieved already.”

When I came to Leicester I wanted to be part of the city. It was theatre that attracted me originally. I went to see a friend in a choir and I have seen many shows since, I feel very comfortable there it’s like a safe space. Now I’m a trustee for The Y I don’t want to just sit around a table, being a trustee is more than that, it’s about leading by example; selling raffle tickets, coming to events and now leaving a legacy. I do like it when I meet young people. One resident said to me he wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for The Y, so that was really powerful. He’s now gone to university.”
