Whether you are sending your child to school for the first time this September, or they are going into their second, third or fourth year, most parents feel apprehensive. Doing everything to protect your child comes naturally but protection comes in many different forms. Now is the time to make sure your children are protected should something happen to you.

In the UK more than 41,000 children a year experience the death of a parent according to the charity Winston’s Wish. If both parents die and there is no valid Will, and therefore no appointed guardian, children could be put into foster care until the courts decide with whom they should live. With the traditional nuclear family model declining, this adds additional complications.

Making a Will allows you to

  • Decide who will take care of your children should something happen to you;
  • Make it known how and where your children should be educated;
  • Note any other wishes you have from what your children eat to what they should receive as pocket money.
