Leave a gift in your will

Leaving a gift to Refuge in your will has the power to transform lives.

Refuge is committed to a world where domestic violence is not tolerated or ignored. By remembering Refuge in your will you can help secure a future in which women and children can live in safety – free from fear.

How do I leave a gift to Refuge in my will?

There are several ways in which you can leave a legacy gift to Refuge. A residuary gift (i.e. a percentage of your estate) will help make the biggest difference to Refuge’s work, because it will keep up with inflation and retain its value better than a fixed sum of money.  However, we are grateful for all donations, large and small.

Download our step-by-step guide to leaving a legacy to Refuge and read our helpful glossary of terms.

If you would like to add a gift to Refuge to an existing will, you can do so easily by using a codicil. A codicil is a supplement that allows additions or changes to be made to a will.

If you have made more than one will, it is important that your codicil relates to your most recent will.

Please consult a professional when making a codicil. You can find a solicitor in your area through the Law Society or by calling 020 7242 1222.
