How making a will can protect your family and help children in need

Great podcasts for parents and carers

It's difficult to think about but what will happen to your family if you or your partner, or worse both of you, die?

Less than half of Australians have a will, but UNICEF are hoping to change this, and help kids in poverty at the same time.

The Good Will Project is bringing lawyers together with parents to prepare their wills in case of death. In the process of making sure your children will be cared and provided for, you can also help another child in need.

Melanie Verges from UNICEF takes us through how it works. Head to the The Good Will Project website to find your nearest participating solicitor to get involved.
