Why we need your support  

By leaving a gift in your Will to The Salvation Army, it is a wonderful way of offering life-changing support to the most vulnerable people in our society. Almost 50% of the money donated comes from gifts in Wills. These donations serve as a vital source of income, making it possible to carry out valuable, wide-ranging, and long-term work. 

A gift can help care for, befriend, and nourish vulnerable people in our society and ensure your compassion and kindness will live on. If you do decide to add a gift to The Salvation Army, we promise that it will help to change lives for years to come.
