Leeds Mencap Will Week – 15th to the 19th March

Leeds Mencap Will Week – 15th to the 19th March 2021

You’re never too young or too old to make a Will, and the process is often a lot easier than you’d think.

We are partnering with Oakwood Solicitors in Leeds again this March, to give you the chance to make or change your Will in return for a donation to Leeds Mencap.

Julie Bailey who took part in Will Week last year said ‘I was fortunate to obtain a will via Leeds Mencap last year. I was very impressed with Oakwood Solicitors; Charlotte was excellent and very knowledgeable about providing for complex and special needs. I highly recommend Oakwood and supporting Leeds Mencap in this way’.

Anne Taylor also took part and said We thought the service was brilliant. It was something we had been meaning to do, but just had not got around to it.  Oakwood Solicitors were very easy to work and knowledgeable, they really put us at ease’.

The appointments will be done online via zoom or over the phone and will take place between the 15th to the 19th March. During your appointment, the Oakwood specialist will go through everything needed to draw up either a Standard* or Joint Will and invite you to make a donation to Leeds Mencap.

This appointment can also include specific advice on providing for a child that has a learning disability. Oakwood Solicitors can advise on any necessary detail in your Will, with no additional cost. This can include adding an SND trust (Special Needs and Disabilities) for no extra charge.

We have a limited amount of places so they will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

All donations to Leeds Mencap are gratefully received

You can make a donation directly to Leeds Mencap or anonymously through Oakwood Solicitors, who will send it onto us.

· A standard Will normally costs £150

· A joint Will normally costs £250

· £50 for amendments to an existing Will
