Make a lasting impact on families facing dementia by leaving a gift in your Will

In the next 30 years there will be a huge increase in the number of people living with dementia.  

With no cure in sight, hundreds of thousands more families will struggle to cope with the pressures of caring and will desperately need the help of our specialist dementia nurses.     

But right now, we cannot reach everyone who needs our help.  
Which is why leaving a gift in your Will to Dementia UK is a wonderful way to give back to a cause you feel passionately about. After providing for your family and friends, a gift to Dementia UK will grow the number of specialist dementia nurses and support more families facing dementia, now, and in generations to come.  

Supporters like Jan understand the life-changing care our Admiral Nurses can provide to help families when they need it most. She says:  

“I’m leaving a gift in my Will to Dementia UK because no one should have to face dementia alone. It is an honour and a privilege to support the vital work they do and to ensure carers get the help and expertise they need.”   

Whether you’re making a Will for the first time or updating your existing Will, it doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive. Dementia UK partners with several different Will writing providers to offer you the chance to make or update your Will for free, either in-person or online.   

Please do take a look at our website for more information or download our free gifts in Wills guide here.
There’s no obligation to include a gift to Dementia UK, although we hope you will consider it. 

Every gift, no matter the size, could make a significant difference in helping people living with dementia stay independent for longer and support the people caring for them.  

On behalf of everyone at Dementia UK, thank you for considering supporting us in this way. If you have any further questions about leaving a gift, or the difference it would make, please do contact us on
