A new system alerting charities to when they have been left money in wills is to be established by HM Courts and Tribunals Service. Charity representatives are being invited to help establish a new service that delivers a sustainable and efficient arrangement for the sector.

HMCTS chief executive, Susan Acland-Hood, said: “I recognise the value to charities of receiving early notification of bequests left in wills and we are committed to working alongside the sector to establish a new, sustainable arrangement that works for everyone.”

Representatives of the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations, the National Council of Voluntary Organisations, the Institute of Fundraising and the Institute of Legacy Management have been invited to join a working group bringing together views of the sector with the aim of creating a new and sustainable arrangement that will continue to work for all those using the current service.
