Leave a legacy

Leave a legacy

A legacy is a donation left to a charity in your Will. It is a lasting gift so the causes you feel passionate about in life can continue long into the future.

Leaving a gift in your Will is a way you can support us, even if you are unable to donate at this time.

A legacy can be large or small and does not have to be a choice between your family, friends or favourite charity. You can easily include them all, providing security for loved ones and your continued support for Caring Together.

Why your gift will have such amazing impact on future generations of carers and their loved ones

Our charity has been supporting carers for 40 years.

We are incredibly fortunate, currently, to receive over 95% of our income from statutory sources. But this funding only allows us to survive and not thrive to meet increasing needs.

We support 17,000 carers and their families every year but there are over 180,000 carers in our region. And this number is growing.

We yearn to have the financial strength to reach every carer who needs our support.

The average annual cost we incur for supporting a carer is as little as £300 – can you imagine the impact your legacy will have for future generations of carers?

Our dream is to reach ALL carers who need us. They are living in in your street or village or city. You might not see them much, because they are dedicating their lives to a loved one at all hours of the day and night. Maybe you are a carer and understand exactly what others like you are going through.

It is so easy

To leave us a gift in your Will is so easy. You can just contact your professional adviser and give them our registered charity name and number.

Caring Together Charity
(known as Caring Together)
Registered Charity No. 1091522

The only decision you have to make is the type of gift you would like to leave us – which can be any percentage of your estate (1% to 100% depending on your circumstances) or an affordable sum of money.

Your estate might even save some inheritance tax (every £1,000 you leave us might reduce the tax bill by £400).

Our legacy promises

We promise:

  • To use your gift wisely and effectively.
  • If you want your gift used for a specific purpose, we will do our utmost to fulfil your wish.
  • We will never put you under any pressure to tell us your intentions but if you do tell us then we can say thank you!

If you would like any further information, please contact Nicky Newton on 07936 359122 or by emailing [email protected]

Finally, if you have already written Caring Together into your Will – thank you so much!
