How your gift helps transform lives

Making a Will is a very personal matter, and your first priority is, and should always be, your family. Many people choose to also include a gift to a charity in their Will, to help ensure their kindness and compassion live on after they’ve gone.

Your gift can help us to provide support to families living in poverty and those who are experiencing homelessness.

In Worthing, money from gifts in Wills was used to set up a befriending service through the ‘Welcome In’ Community Programme. The scheme is aimed primarily at improving the wellbeing of older people and alleviating social isolation. 

If you are thinking about leaving a gift in your Will to The Salvation Army you can download or request a copy of our free Will guide, which will help guide you through the process of writing your Will.

Below are two testimonies from people who have decided to help us continue our work in their name.
