Age needs one voice. Now it has:
Age UK is the new force combining Age Concern England and
Help the Aged in England.
Leave a legacy to Age UK - a legacy is one of the most effective ways that you can support people in later life.
Your legacy will make a real difference to a person in need of help. It could provide advice to someone struggling to access pension benefits, bring sight to someone blinded by cataracts in India or fund the latest research into Alzheimer’s disease.
We promise that your legacy will be spent wisely and make a genuine difference to the people we help. You can arrange for your legacy to benefit our work internationally, nationally, regionally or locally – the choice is yours.
If you would like to speak to someone about leaving a legacy to Age UK, please contact the Legacy team on 0203 033 1421 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

You can leave a specific sum of money or an item such as jewellery or a piece of art. You can leave a share in, or all of, what’s left of the value of your estate after all bills have been paid and all other legacies have been distributed.
If you would like to add a gift to Age UK to an existing will, you can use a codicil. Adding a codicil to your will means there is no need to change the terms of your current will. It simply adds a new instruction.
As a rule if the change you wish to make is quite small or simple, you can use a codicil, and if the change is more significant or complex you should make a new will.
If you wish to make several changes, big or small, it is advisable to make a new will. If you have any questions around writing a codicil or updating your will, you should seek advice from a solicitor or professional adviser.
Download our codicil template (PDF, 181KB) or talk to our legacy team to add a codicil to your will.
There is suggested wording to leave a gift to Age UK in your will below.
