Leave a world less lonely
With a gift to Age Cymru Gwent in your will, you can do so much to make sure older people have the support they deserve in the years to come.
It's easy to continue supporting your favourite causes with a gift in your will.
When we make our wills, we naturally want to make sure our loved ones are cared for. But through your will you can also leave something special to the many thousands of older people in Wales who have no one to turn to when times get tough.
Gifts in wills are vital to Age Cymru Gwent, and mean that years from now, people in later life will have someone to turn to if they’re feeling vulnerable, lonely and forgotten. It’s the reassurance that, when the time comes, we will be there to help with everyday needs, so people can continue to live with dignity and respect.
Age Cymru Gwent 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 life better for older people in Gwent.
How to leave a gift in your 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 Cymru Gwent in your will, all you need is our charity details below:

If you already have a will
If you already have a will and you want to include a gift to Age Cymru Gwent 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 Cymru Gwent?
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.
