Leaving a legacy to Compton is more than just ‘making a donation’, it’s investing in the future of care for your community.

Each year we provide essential care and support to thousands of patients and family members throughout Wolverhampton, the Black Country and the surrounding areas. It costs £7.9million to be able to offer our services to those living with incurable illnesses and their relatives, free of charge.

It’s not always easy to make donations to us, in the here and now which is why a gift in your will could be the perfect way to support us. We also understand that often family and friends come first and only then may you wish to consider leaving a gift to Compton. In doing so, you can help us to continue to offer the outstanding care of tomorrow, that’s vital to our patients, their relatives, friends and carers.

We appreciate legacies of all shapes and sizes and ensure that each one goes a long way in helping us to support all of our service users.

You can leave a legacy to us in a number of different ways. We’re most grateful of residual legacies (a % remainder of your estate), pecuniary legacies (a fixed sum), and even named items of value such as: furniture, jewellery, vehicles and property, which can also be left to us should you choose.

No matter what your age, a professionally written, up to date will is important to have. It ensures that your wishes are carried out after you’ve died.

It may be that you’ve already written your will before becoming aware of the work that we do at Compton Care, or that being a part of a loved ones journey with us has inspired you to leave a gift for us. If so, your will can be easily amended by filling out our Codicil form and taking it to your solicitor.

The above information acts as a guidance only. You should always seek professional legal advice when making or updating your will.
