We don’t know what the future for children is going to look like. 30 years ago we couldn’t have predicted how the world would unfold or the impact the internet would have on young people’s lives.
That’s why the gifts people leave us in their Wills are so important. They mean we can continue to face new challenges and deliver our vital services to keep children safe into the future.

Why leave a legacy gift?
We're here to prevent abuse. But every day more children need our help. Large or small, your legacy gifts make a difference to the young people we help. After you've taken care of the people closest to you, a gift in your Will could help us be there for every child.
"I never got any help during my childhood, but I can do something to help children now"
Now married, and with children of her own, counselling has helped Rita come to terms with her difficult childhood and she wants to help other children get the help that she couldn't. Growing up, Rita suffered emotional and physical abuse at home. "I feel like my mother took away my childhood," she says, "she would hit me all the time and for any reason."
"I chose to leave a gift to the NSPCC in my Will because of my experiences as a child," she says, "I might not see the difference that my gift makes but I know I’m doing something and it feels great."
People leaving a gift in their Will is our second biggest source of donations. Without their support, we wouldn't be able to protect children in the crucial ways that we do.
A legacy gift will go towards:

Talk to us about your Will
If you're thinking about leaving a gift to the NSPCC, our friendly team are here to help.
Or if you've already left us a gift and have any questions, we'd love to hear from you.
We always recommend using a solicitor or legal professional if you're thinking of writing or amending your Will. But we can help with any questions you have about leaving a gift to the NSPCC. We can:
- discuss how you might like your gift to be spent
- arrange a visit to a local project so you can see the difference your legacy will make
- explain the different types of legacy gifts and their benefits
- talk you through our Will writing offers
- help you find a solicitor.
