Age UK Barnsley is dedicated to providing support for older individuals in the Barnsley Borough. If you choose to leave a gift in your will to us, you'll be making a profound difference in enhancing the lives of older people in our community.

Every single gift is invaluable to us, and we are deeply grateful for any contribution you may consider leaving after ensuring the well-being of your family and friends. Regardless of the size, your gift will significantly impact someone who relies on our support.

How can I leave a gift in my will?

Having a will and keeping it up-to-date helps ensure that your wishes can be respected and your property and assets benefit people and causes you really care about. We would always recommend that you speak to a qualified professional such as a solicitor, when making or amending your will.

Your solicitor will be able to advise you on the required wording to carry out your wishes. If you wish to leave a gift to Age UK Barnsley in your will, all you need is our charity details below:

Age UK Barnsley, 36a Queens Road, Barnsley, S71 1AR 
Registered charity number: 1144123

What if I already have a will?

If you already have a will and you want to include a gift to Age UK Barnsley 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 Barnsley?

You can leave a specific sum of money or an item such as jewellery or a piece of art.

You can also 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.
