About the role

There are currently over 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK, and this is expected to increase to 1 million by 2025, and 1.4 million by 2040.

In response to this, Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service. When things get challenging or difficult for people with dementia and their families, Admiral Nurses work alongside them, giving the one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions that people need. The unique dementia expertise and experience an Admiral Nurse brings is a lifeline – it helps everyone in the family to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.

One of Dementia UK’s strategic fundraising priorities is to raise awareness of the importance of Gifts in Wills to ensure the public, supporters and Admiral Nurses understand the difference these gifts make to the charity’s financial sustainability. In memory giving provides benefits to both the supporter, with donations being a focus and therapeutic outlet for grief; and to Dementia UK, with remembrance offering an inspiration for future support, including gifts in Wills (with in memory donors more likely to leave gifts and at a higher level than other supporters). Therefore gifts in Wills and in memory fundraising is a key income stream for Dementia UK, raising £4m+ per year.

The Legacy and In Memory Manager will be an experienced fundraiser who will develop and deliver Dementia UK’s gifts in Wills and in memory programme, increasing the awareness of legacy giving with existing and new supporters, maximising opportunities to receive in memory donations and increasing the overall value and length of support from gifts in Wills and in memory giving from existing and new supporters across a range of in-person, print and digital channels.
