We have played a pivotal role in reducing sudden infant deaths in the UK by over 80% since the ‘Back to Sleep’ campaign in 1991.

But we want to stop all unexpected deaths of babies and toddlers. A gift in your Will, no matter how large or small, will help us get nearer to this goal.

If you’re considering making or updating a Will, we recommend speaking to a local solicitor or professional Will-writer.

As part of the Remember a Charity initiative, you are able to receive a 20% discount off the cost of writing a Will from Co-operative Legal Services. They offer a professional, convenient and easy to use Will writing service. Alternatively, you can find a solicitor near you. You are also able to make a simple Will online for free, courtesy of Beyond.

We also have a useful guide on making or updating your Will.

If you have any other questions or would like to speak with someone about supporting The Lullaby Trust in your Will, please call 020 7802 3201 or email fundraising@lullabytrust.org.uk

Why it is important to make a Will 

Whether or not you consider you have many possessions or savings, there are a number of reasons why you should consider making a Will:

  • Make your wishes known – Without a Will, what happens to your estate will be decided by the law. Writing a Will ensures the people that matter to you most will be looked after in the way you want them to.
  • Naming a guardian for your child – If you have children, appointing a guardian ensures that a person you choose will care for them if either one or both parents die. If you don’t name a guardian for them, the court will appoint one.
  • Looking after your loved ones – Unmarried partners and partners who have not registered a civil partnership cannot inherit from each other unless there is a Will in place.
  • Save on inheritance tax – In some cases, having a Will can help to reduce the amount of inheritance tax that needs to be paid on your estate.
