Remember a Charity Week 2019

Remember a Charity Week logo 2019

Dementia UK is a proud member of awareness raising organisation ‘Remember a Charity.’ Remember a Charity works with the public and government to highlight the impact of leaving charitable gifts in Wills.  Dementia UK has been taking part in Remember a Charity Week for four years.  It’s an opportunity for charities to come together, start conversations about gifts in Wills and highlight how they can positively impact the future.

This year the theme is ‘Pass on something wonderful’ because a gift in a Will is a way of passing on something incredible to the next generation.  The Week takes place 9th to 15th September.

Why consider leaving a gift?

Dementia is the major health issue of our time.  More than 850,000 people in the UK have the condition – and that’s set to rise to 1 million by 2021.

Dementia UK knows how tough it can be caring for someone with dementia. It can be a 24 hour a day job. Our specialist dementia nurses – Admiral Nurses – work with families to give them the one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions they need to face dementia with more confidence.

Currently, we can only support a fraction of the families living with a diagnosis. Many more Admiral Nurses are needed in order to reach every family who needs us. To recruit and train more nurses, we need your help.

Through a gift in your Will, you can fund more nurses so that no family is ever left to cope with dementia alone.  It’s a gift that lets you leave your mark on a cause you feel passionately about. And it helps you be remembered as someone who cared about others, and in particular families facing dementia.

To find out more about leaving a gift in your Will to Dementia UK, you can request our free guide, either through the post or as a downloadable PDF.
