Here at Alzheimer's Society we are always working hard to improve the lives of people living with dementia, to raise awareness, and to continue to fund life changing research on all aspects of dementia.
The British Home is a charity that has cared for severely disabled residents for 150 years. We could only have continued our work for so long because of the generosity of our many donors and supporters, especially those who have remembered us with a gift in their will. Our residents have modern spacious single rooms and are cared for as unique adults, each with their individual needs.
One third of Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research is funded by gifts in Wills. Without this funding, much of the research and development of new therapies being undertaken across the country would not be possible.
Parkinson’s is a neurological disorder affecting over 145,000 people in the UK alone. It is the second most common neurodegenerative disease, yet symptoms are still treated with the same group of drugs we have had for over 50 years. There is currently no approved treatment which can even slow down, let alone reverse or cure the condition.
Demelza Hospice Care for Children helps children who may not live a long life, to live a full life. We provide specialist care to hundreds of babies, children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and support to their families in East Sussex, Kent and South East London. Leaving Demelza a gift in your Will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support us.
We know that living with dementia can be a hard and lonely experience. Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support through our Admiral Nurse service, working together with families to provide the one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions they need to live more positively with dementia every day.
Dimbleby Cancer Care helps make life better for people facing cancer, providing practical and psychological support to patients, their families and carers, primarily through our support centres at Guy’s Cancer Centre and Queen Mary’s, Sidcup. Our focus is the support of people living with cancer, addressing the impact that a cancer diagnosis can have on the individual and those closest to them throughout treatment and beyond.
The Greek Animal Welfare Fund (GAWF), operating in Greece as Animal Action, based in Athens. GAWF’s objects are the prevention and relief of cruelty and suffering amongst animals in Greece.
Listening Books is a UK charity providing nearly 8,000 fantastic audiobooks on three easily accessible formats: downloads, internet streaming and MP3 CDs. Our service is available to anyone who has a disability or illness which makes it difficult to hold a book, turn its pages, or read in the usual way.
At the NSPCC we’re leading the fight against child abuse in the UK and Channel Islands. We help children who’ve been abused to rebuild their lives, we protect children at risk, and we find the best ways of preventing child abuse from ever happening. We want to make sure that every child has the safe childhood they deserve.
