Be part of tomorrow's cure for dementia
Leaving a gift in your Will to Alzheimer’s Research UK can bring us closer to the day we finally overcome dementia.
Every day our researchers are getting closer to a cure for dementia, but we rely on gifts from the public to keep moving forward. Gifts from Wills fund a third of our research and are vital in our fight against dementia.
Supporters who help us in this special way remember us in their Wills because they understand that funding research is our best hope of creating a world free from dementia.
Every gift we receive, whether it’s a hundred pounds or tens of thousands, is used to fund vital research in the key areas of cause, prevention, diagnosis and treatment. We’ve made some important breakthroughs that have helped us understand more about dementia and also given us exciting new directions in which to focus our research.
We are making good progress, but we still have a long way to go, which is why we need your support. Please download our legacy booklet designed to give you more information about making or changing your Will and leaving a gift to help us defeat dementia.
Many people are put off changing their Will because they think it will be difficult, but it’s actually a very straightforward and simple process. You can amend your Will using a Codicil which is a simple legal document that amends an existing Will.
You are free to change your Will at any time you choose, and as frequently as you like. Often it’s the case that a change of circumstances, such as the birth of a grandchild, that prompts you to change your Will. You may decide that as your circumstances change you would like to give more to the charities you support. We hope that if you find yourself in this position, you may consider including Alzheimer’s Research UK.
