Let's make Scotland a place where we can all love later life
Remembering Age Scotland in your Will
Leaving a gift in your Will to Age Scotland will help ensure that we are always here to help older people facing the demands and challenges growing older can bring.
Older people deserve our love and respect and we do not want anyone to face illness, isolation, discrimination or poverty alone.
A gift in your Will could help older people in all sorts of ways:
- It could help fund a Development Officer or our grants programme, to support and develop local older people’s groups across Scotland, today and tomorrow – where older people can come together, remain active and enjoy being part of a community.
- It could help ensure our guides and factsheets remain free – these improve the quality of life for thousands of older people every year by providing information on things like benefits, money matters and health and community care which can be life-changing.
- It could also contribute to our Policy and Campaign work – where Age Scotland ensures older people’s ideas for a better future reach the ears of those who need to hear them.
When you come to write or update your Will, and you have taken care of your loved ones, please remember Age Scotland – even a small gift can make a massive difference towards creating a Scotland where everyone can love later life.

Make a Pledge
Gifts left in wills are really important to Age Scotland. However even if you haven't made a will, making a pledge to do so in the future would really help us to find out about your future intentions.
Pledges are not legally binding so by filling out this form you are not committing yourself! You are simply allowing Age Scotland to confidently estimate future support for their cause.
Leave a Legacy
If you have already made a will but you want to leave a legacy to a charity you can make an addition or change it without re-writing your current will. This addition is called a codicil.
To leave a legacy to Age Scotland please download the codicil form below and take it along to your solicitor.
Please note however that this form is not legally binding on its own and has to be part of your main will. We advise you to seek the advice of a solicitor.
If you have any questions about leaving a legacy to us, please contact Age Scotland directly – they will be happy to discuss this with you.
