Thank you for considering supporting Age UK London by leaving us a gift in your will.
For many years, now, Age UK London has been helped in its work with the 2.2 million older people in London through the generosity of those who have remembered us in their wills.
Leaving us such a gift, however large or small, ensures that we will be able to continue our work for older people living in the capital.
You can either allocate a fixed amount or choose to provide the amount of money remaining in your estate after all other bequests and expenses have been paid. It is easy to arrange and if you have already written your will you can simply add a line within it, called a codicil, using the codicil form below.
If we don’t take steps now to improve the needs, rights and status of older Londoners, our children will still be doing so as they age. You can help us to ensure that the future is brighter for our older people, as well as for younger generations, by remembering Age UK London in your will.

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