Leaving a gift in your will to Age UK Lambeth will ensure you leave a fantastic legacy to support future generations of older people in Lambeth.
Every single gift is vital to Age UK Lambeth and we appreciate any gift you may choose to leave us after taking care of your family and friends. Whatever the value of your gift, it will go a long way to support older people in Lambeth to live enriched, productive and purposeful lives.
The most important information to remember is that you clearly state Age UK Lambeth in your documents and not say, for example, Age UK, as we won't receive this donation. Age UK Lambeth is an independent charity and whilst your donation would be received by Age UK (our national partner) the funds won't be directly used to support older people in the borough of Lambeth.
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 that 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 Lambeth 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 UK Lambeth in it, there may not be a 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 Lambeth?
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 a residuary gift) is that it remains the same over time, and you won't need to change your will to keep up with inflation.
