Get Help and Support

Brain Injury is lifelong. A legacy is a lifeline.

A planned gift in your will can improve lives impacted by brain injury.

We invite you to become a part of our enduring story by considering leaving a gift in your Will.

Gifts in Wills are a fundamental source of income for Headway Norfolk and Waveney.

They help ensure that the charity can continue to enhance the lives of all those impacted by brain injury both now and in the future. They enable us to continue and expand the crucial role our services deliver to communities across our region.

Support from people like you is essential. Even the smallest gift is a big step in helping us improve lives after the impact of brain injury.

Why is a will important?

Making a Will allows you to specify who gets your money, property, investments and possessions after you pass away. It ensures your assets go to the people and causes you care about. Without a Will, this decision is determined by the laws of intestacy, which might not align with your exact wishes. Making a Will also eases the stress for your loved ones during a difficult time as you have made all the important decisions for them.

Step 1 - Start thinking about your will.

Prepare to write your Will by thinking about what you’ll be leaving and who you’d like to include in your Will. To help you prepare, you can use our Will planner available on our website. You’ll find this at

Step 2 - Find a solicitor.

Find a solicitor and book an appointment to write your Will. You may already have a solicitor you’d like to use, but if not, you can find one on The Law Society website. You can also get in touch with our partner Heritage Wills, or use our free Will writing service with our trusted partners "Make a will online".

Step 3- Keep your will safe.

Keep your Will safe and tell your executors* where it is. Let your family know if you’ve included us in your Will and if you’re happy to tell us, we’d love to know too. *Your executors are the people you choose to make sure the wishes detailed in your Will are carried out.
