How your gift will help

Gifts in wills, or legacies, make an immense difference to our research, funding in some years between a third and half of our activities.

By leaving a gift in your will to Epilepsy Research UK you will be ensuring the progress of our work towards a life free from epilepsy, helping secure the funding of life changing life saving research for the benefit of future generations.

When thinking about your will, after you’ve looked after your family and friends, please do consider leaving a gift to Epilepsy Research UK.

Everyone who leaves a gift to the charity will be making a real difference to our work, however large or small your gift.

Gordon and Gill’s family have been greatly affected by epilepsy. In hope of a future where epilepsy can be safely controlled they have remembered Epilepsy Research UK in their will.

We look forward to a time when epilepsy has less impact on people’s lives. It means so much to us that through a gift in our will we can contribute to a better future for people with epilepsy.

Would you like help to write your will?

As members of the National Free Wills Network we can offer supporters an opportunity to get a simple will written, or an existing will updated, by a local solicitor – at no cost to you.

Taking up our Free Wills Network offer is a very simple process. Phone us on 020 3096 7887 or send us your Free Wills request here and we will arrange for the National Free Wills Network to send you a pack with details of at least two solicitors local to you taking part in the scheme. You then make your own appointment direct with the participating solicitor of your choice who will draw up your Will for you.

By taking up the offer you are under no obligation to include a gift to Epilepsy Research UK in your Will, but we hope once you have looked after your family and friends, you will choose to do so. Gifts in Wills make a vital contribution to our work driving and enabling life changing and life saving research into epilepsy.

Everyone who remembers Epilepsy Research UK with a gift in their Will contributes to bringing closer our vision of a life free from epilepsy.
