Leave a gift in your will

A gift in your will to Herriot ensures we're there to care for and support local people today and in the years to come.

Leaving a gift to Herriot

Leaving a gift in your will to Herriot Hospice Homecare, however big or small, helps us look after local people who need our support.

Once you’ve taken care of your family and friends, gifts in will left to Herriot enables us to continue providing our care now and as we plan for the future.

How to leave a gift in your will

A solicitor is best placed to write your will or make a change to an existing one and can provide advice about the different types of gift you can make to Herriot. Most people choose to leave a percentage of their estate to charity (known as a residuary gift), as this will ensure that your gift keeps up with the rates of inflation over time.

How your gift supports our care

One in five of our patients across our family of services is cared for thanks to gifts left in wills, making these very special donations incredibly important to the services we provide today, and helping ensure we are there for people who need us in the future.

Find out more about the impact we make, thanks to you.
