Our legacy FAQs

Do I have enough money to leave a gift in my Will?

Every gift we receive, no matter how large or small, will make a real difference to our mission of transforming the lives of people with physical disabilities.

Even donating a small percentage of your estate will help to support our work.

Can I leave a gift to a specific project such as one of your training centres, a specific dog or partnership?

Yes, you can ask to restrict any gift to a specific project. Alternatively, you can choose to sponsor a dog’s training, or a whole partnership for its lifetime.

You will find more information about this by reading about our Gift of Independence scheme.

Will my legacy gift be confidential?

Yes. Canine Partners will respect your privacy at all times. We will not pass on the details of your Will or any confidential information.

If you would like to share your personal reasons for choosing Canine Partners, we would love to hear it. We may then ask you if we can use your story for press, publications or social media but there is no obligation to agree to this.

If you would like to share your story, please contact our Legacies team using the contact form below.

How do I leave a gift for Canine Partners?

We always recommend that you consult a solicitor when either making your will for the first time, or changing any element of your will.

You can rest assured that you have had professional advice and your wishes will be respected.

Can you help me find a solicitor?

As a charity, we are not able to recommend a particular solicitor. Your relevant Law Society can help you to find the details of a solicitor close to you.

For England and Wales, please visit www.lawsociety.org.uk and for Scotland visit www.lawscot.org.uk. Northern Ireland residents can visit www.lawsoc-ni.org.

What about Inheritance Tax?

Thanks to a new Government initiative, by leaving 10% of your estate to charity, the rate of Inheritance Tax applicable to the rest of the estate is reduced to 36%.

Therefore, by giving to Canine Partners you could benefit your beneficiaries as well.

Can Canine Partners act as Executor of my Will?

As Canine Partners has no in-house legal team, we are unable to act as Executor of your will.

What information about Canine Partners will my solicitor need?

Your solicitor will ask for the charity’s registered address and the Registered Charity Number.
Registered address: Canine Partners, Mill Lane, Heyshott, West Sussex, GU29 0ED
Registered Charity Number: 803680
