Leave a gift in your Will

Making a Will is an empowering way to ensure that your loved ones will be protected and that your wishes for the future are legally documented. After your loved ones have been taken care of, we would be delighted if you would consider leaving a gift in your Will to Link Age Southwark. By remembering Link Age Southwark in your Will, you will be making a hugely valued and lasting contribution towards preventing isolation and loneliness for older people across Southwark.

We are very grateful to all our supporters who have already included a gift to us in their Will. Such gifts will allow us to continue to recruit volunteers to provide our wonderful local services to older people in Southwark.
