A gift in your will

Leave a gift to help us support vulnerable children and young people.

Your will is your opportunity to leave a gift to both the people and causes that are close to your heart.

We'd love you to support our work with a gift in your will.

The process is easy and we can support you every step of the way.

Jenny's story

A free will for you

Our will-writing service could help you to either write or update your will at no cost to you if you are over 55.

We're working in partnership with QualitySolicitors, a nationwide network of licensed and professional law firms. Using a QualitySolicitor firm will ensure your will is drawn up correctly and legally. If there are no participating branches near you, we can also provide a more local free will service.

To receive more information on our will scheme, simply fill in our information request form or, if you prefer, call us on 0800 008 7005 to discuss.

Thinking about your gift

If you want to leave Barnardo's a gift in your will, it's worth taking time to think about the form and value of your gift.

You can leave the following types:

  • a gift of a specific amount of money - you can ask your will writer to index link the amount to ensure that its value increases with inflation
  • a percentage of whatever is left from your estate once you've looked after your family and friends
  • a specific item such as property, jewellery or other valuables
  • shares

Contact us

It is entirely up to you whether or not you tell us about your gift. However, it would be wonderful to know so we can thank you and keep you up to date with our work.

Please fill in our online contact form or call us on 0800 008 7005 to find out more.
