Create a lasting legacy

Once you've provided for your loved ones, leaving a gift in your will for the Sussex Community NHS Charity is a wonderful way to give something back and help to improve the health and wellbeing of other patients and their families. Even a gift of just 1% of your estate can have a huge impact on generations to come.

It's easy to leave a gift to us in your will – all you need is our charity name (Sussex Community NHS Charity) and our registered charity number (1051763).

You can change your mind at any time, but we hope that you'll consider remembering us in this way.

If you are making small changes to your existing will, you can complete a document called a Codicil. A solicitor or other qualified professional can help you with this. For significant changes to your will, we'd recommend consulting a solicitor or qualified professional to discuss your options, which may include redrafting your will.


There are 3 types of gifts you can leave:

  • A pecuniary legacy, which is a fixed amount of money
  • A specific gift, which is an item like a piece of jewellery
  • A residuary gift, which is the remainder of your estate after specified gifts to loved ones and any debts have been taken care of

Not at all. We understand that everyone's circumstances are different. Gifts of all shapes and sizes are hugely appreciated and can make a significant difference to the work we do.

Yes. For instance, if your estate is above the Inheritance Tax threshold, and you leave at least 10% of your estate to a charity, this would reduce your Inheritance Tax rate from 40% to 36%. Inheritance Tax can be complicated, so we recommend speaking with a qualified professional if you think you may be liable for tax.
