Support Us : Legacies

By leaving a gift in your will, you will help us to plan for our future to continue to create the conditions that all people with Down’s syndrome need to live full and rewarding lives.

Leaving a gift in your will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support the DSA.  Legacies are vital to our very survival . To raise some much needed awareness, we’ve joined forces with Remember A Charity, the largest consortium of its kind in the UK working to promote legacy giving.

With 35%* of people saying they would consider including a gift to charity after providing for their family and friends in their will, and only 7%* doing so, there is huge potential to increase income from legacies. We are proud to be working with Remember A Charity to make this a reality.
