Age UK Barnet is committed to being there for older people who need us. If you decide to leave a gift in your will to us, you will be supporting us to make sure that a local older person in the future gets the help and support they need.
Every single gift is vital to Age UK Barnet and we appreciate any gift you may choose to leave us. Whatever the value of your gift, it will go a long way to help someone who needs us.
After providing for your family and friends remembering a charity in your will is a very special way to donate to Age UK Barnet. It truly is a gift of a lifetime and will mean that we will be able to carry on the work of supporting older people in the Borough . This support will be even more vital in the future, because as a nation we are growing older. In just 30 years time the UK population aged over 60 will have increased by 50%.
It will not cost you a penny during your lifetime. It is simple to do and is free from inheritance tax.
All gifts, whatever their size make a real difference. Thank you.

If you already have a will
If you already have a will and you want to include a gift to Age UK Barnet in it, there may not be need to rewrite it. You can ask a qualified professional such as a solicitor to add an amendment (called a codicil). As a general 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.
What kind of gift can I leave to Age UK Barnet?
You can leave a specific sum of money or an item such as jewellery or a piece of art. Or you can leave a share in, or all of, what's left of the value of your estate after family and friends have been taken care of. The advantage of leaving a share (also known as residuary gift) is that it remains the same over time, and you won't need to change your will to keep up with inflation.
