Leave a lasting legacy - protect the future of others

We believe that Gloucestershire should be a place where everyone can age well. However, for many older people loneliness and isolation are an everyday reality being forgotten and left to cope alone. Thankfully, Age UK Gloucestershire can support older people with their individual, everyday needs. Whether that’s giving Terry the opportunity to make friends so he’s no longer isolated, ensuring Sue can access the benefits she’s entitled to or making sure that Bill can keep in touch with his grandchildren overseas. By helping older people navigate later life, they will be able to live happier, healthier lives, independently in their own home.  

A gift in your will can help make sure Age UK Gloucestershire will be there for older people who need our support. Whatever the value, a gift in your will can help support older people in the future.
