By leaving a gift in your Will you will help the next generation of young people increase their opportunities and fulfil their potential. We will use your gift to support our most important work. You don't have to leave a large amount to make a real difference - every £1 you donate will go to help some of the UK’s most disadvantaged children and young people.

For Example:

  • £500 pays for a youth worker for a week of inspirational community activities
  • £2,000 pays for a life-changing residential experience for ten young people
  • £5,000 supports ten young people leaving care make a successful transition to adulthood
  • £10,000 could refurbish one of our community centres where we deliver youth work in disadvantaged areas

Please contact us for a confidential and informal chat if you are thinking of leaving a gift in your Will - we will be delighted to advise you. Email our fundraising team by clicking here or call Scott Umpleby on 015394 39728.
