Three simple ways to make a difference to older adults in Glasgow:
When making your Will you will firstly arrange taking care of your loved ones but you may also wish to consider leaving a legacy to a charity. Some people choose to leave a lump sum to charities and good causes that they would like to support.
Another way to help is to leave a percentage of your residual estate. This is a good way to support a charity as the value of money changes over time and a percentage will change in line with the value of your estate. When mentioning a charity in your Will it is always good to include the charity number as charities can change their names or address over time and this avoids any confusion.
Glasgow’s Golden Generation has partnerships with a number of solicitors to help you prepare your Will, review your Will or prepare your Power of Attorney. Each of our partners will make a donation to Glasgow’s Golden Generation if you proceed with any of these services.
Many over 60s in Scotland qualify to have their Wills,
Powers of Attorney and Advance Directives prepared for free under the Scottish
Legal Aid Board’s Advice and Assistance scheme.
Not all solicitors offer Legal Aid but all members of the organisation Solicitors for Older People
Scotland do. To find out if you qualify please click here or telephone 0800 152
One of our partners has made some short videos on these areas to give you some more information about them.
