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. Hear from Eric why he decided to leave a legacy to Barnardo's:

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
I just wanted to make the charity a named beneficiary in my will... giving me the satisfaction and the comfort that Barnardo's work will continue in the future, and that I have helped
