Leave a gift in your will today and help to make a difference for future generations.

One of the most meaningful ways you can support the Scottish Cot Death Trust is to remember us in your will.

Having an up-to-date will can provide peace of mind and ensure the people and causes you care about are provided for exactly as you want them to be.

Whether you are making a new will or updating an existing one, we recommend that you seek professional advice from a solicitor. They have the legal expertise to ensure your will is valid, and they can clearly express and carry out your wishes.


Create your will for free

We are delighted to be able to offer Scottish Cot Death Trust supporters the chance to write a simple will for free through our partnership with Guardian Angel.
