Choice not chance flow chart

Details

The purpose of the campaign is to encourage people to think about, and talk about, what might happen in the event of their death, or if they lose mental capacity and need somebody to make decisions for them. The campaign is targeting the 25-50 age group, who are less inclined to think about these issues as they do not think they are relevant. These people often have young families dependent on them as well other responsibilities to consider such as mortgages, which would still need to be paid in the event of their death or if they became incapacitated.

The campaign will encourage people to make a will, put in place a lasting power of attorney and to sign up to the organ donation register.

Making a will

Your will lets you decide what happens to your money, property and possessions after your death. If you make a will you can also make sure you don’t pay more Inheritance Tax than you need to. Also, if you make a will you can appoint a guardian to look after your minor children.

Lasting power of attorney

A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal document that lets you appoint one or more people to help you make decisions or make decisions on your behalf.

This means you have more control if, for example, you have an accident or an illness and can’t make those decisions for yourself.

Organ donation

More than 10,000 people in the UK currently need a transplant. Of these 3 a day will die waiting as there are not enough organs available.
