Be part of tomorrow's cure for dementia
A gift in your Will protects your children, grandchildren and future generations from the fear and heartbreak of 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.
If you would like more information about leaving a gift to Alzheimer’s Research UK, or if you have any questions about making or changing your Will, please do not hesitate to contact us on 0300 111 5555.

This applies to the writing or amending of simple Wills completed by solicitors from around the UK who are members of the Network.
If you decide to remember us in your Will, you will be giving an invaluable gift – hope for future generations of a life free from dementia.

Make a Pledge
Gifts left in wills are really important to Alzheimer's Research UK. 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 Alzheimer's Research UK 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.
If you are only making a small change to your Will, you can leave a legacy to Alzheimer's Research UK by please downloading our Codicil form and taking 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 Alzheimer's Research UK directly – they will be happy to discuss this with you.
