Gifts in Wills
Gifts left in Wills help to fund the practical and emotional support we provide to disabled people and their families.
These special gifts are vital to ensuring we can continue to change attitudes, end injustices and create a fairer society for disabled people.
We offer two free Will writing services. You can choose to write your Will face-to-face by making an appointment with a solicitor or online.
Including Scope in your Will
To give a gift to Scope in your Will, you will need our address and charity registration number:
Scope, Here East Press Centre, 14 East Bay Lane, London E15 2GW
Charity registration number: 208231
Ways to include Scope in your Will
There are lots of ways you can leave a gift to us in your Will, such as:
- A residuary gift. After giving what you want to friends and family, you can leave what's left (or a percentage of what's left) to Scope. This sort of gift will keep its value over the time before your death.
- A cash gift. You can leave a fixed amount of money to Scope. Because of inflation the value of a fixed cash gift will decrease over time, so you may want to review cash gifts from time to time. Or ask your solicitor about linking your cash gifts to the Retail Price Index so they maintain their value.
- A gift in kind. You can leave possessions to us, like property, shares, jewellery or furniture.
- In a trust. You can set aside a sum in your Will which is left in a trust fund and given to Scope when the term of the trust fund ends. You can also do this in the deed of any trust you make in your lifetime.
Amending an existing Will
If you already have a Will and would like to add a gift to Scope, you may be able to add a simple form, known as a codicil, to your existing Will. Speak to your Will writer or solicitor to make sure this is done correctly.
By leaving a gift in your Will, you will be helping us achieve a society where disabled people are treated with equality and fairness.
