General information about making or changing your Will.

If you choose to include a gift to us in your Will, we would be very grateful. Any gift, large or small, helps to fund more vital research and drives us closer to bringing about the first life-changing dementia treatment. If you do choose to include a gift to us in your Will, 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, funding one in three of our groundbreaking research projects. We fund more research than any other dementia charity in the UK, meaning any gift, even just 1% of your estate, would make a big difference to dementia research.
