General information about making or changing your Will.

Thank you for considering supporting Alzheimer’s Research UK with a gift in your Will. Any gift, large or small, protects our children and grandchildren from the heartbreak of dementia. These gifts help our scientists to continue with their life-changing research to improve diagnosis, develop treatments and ultimately cure dementia.

We are so grateful to everyone who chooses to include a gift to Alzheimer’s Research UK in their Will.

When you make or update your Will, if you do choose to include a gift to support dementia research, it’s important to include our full name, Alzheimer’s Research UK, and our registered charity number, which is 1077089 in England and Wales, and SC042474 in Scotland.

Gifts in Wills are a vital source of income for Alzheimer’s Research UK. Even just 1% of your estate would make a big difference to dementia research and to the millions of people affected by this devastating condition.
