Our Gateway information and advice line and volunteer services are completely unfunded. This means that without the generosity of supporters like you we would not be able to continue to provide help to vulnerable people. Legacy gifts are a vital source of income for Help and Care.
Leaving a legacy
A legacy is one of the most effective ways that you can support people in later life. Your legacy will make a real difference to a person in need of help. It could provide advice to someone struggling to access support, help an older person to get to hospitals appointments or fund the Gateway telephone helpline.
We promise that your legacy will be spent wisely and make a genuine difference to the people we help. You can arrange for your legacy to benefit our work regionally or locally – the choice is yours.
If you would like to speak to someone about leaving a legacy to Help and Care, please contact the fundraising team on 0300 111 3303 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to leave a legacy to Help and Care
You can leave a specific sum of money or an item such as jewellery or a piece of art. You can leave a share in, or all of, what’s left of the value of your estate after all bills have been paid and all other legacies have been distributed.
If you already have a will, it’s quick and simple to include a gift to Help and Care. You won’t need to rewrite your will; a qualified solicitor can draft an amendment (called a codicil) for a minimal cost.
Your Legacy is a gift that will never be forgotten.
