Leave a Gift
in Your Will

At David Lewis we support people over a long period of time, so we know it’s really important to plan for the future.

If you know someone with complex needs, you’ll be aware that support often needs to be life-long.
A legacy gift of any size will help us to ensure their future.

Leaving a legacy to David Lewis is not as complicated as you might think. You can do it when you first make a Will, or if you already have a Will, you can add a codicil very easily.

As a supporter of David Lewis we are offering a Free Will writing service, providing you with the opportunity to make a legally binding Will at no cost. This can be done online, in your own home, on the phone or with a solicitor in selected areas.

Please note:- If your will needs to provide for a child or other loved one with a learning disability, please contact us to ensure this service is suitable for you at

A note from John Heritage, our Chief Executive...

If you are considering leaving a legacy to David Lewis, then thank you. We’re truly grateful that you’re here, reading this and thinking about doing something amazing for our Charity.

Every day I’m blown away by the remarkable care provided here at David Lewis. A legacy of any size will help secure that for future generations.

Once again, thank you. Rest assured, your intention to support us in this way is as important to us, as it is to you.”

Over the years we’ve received legacy gifts from families who have used our services. One of these gifts, from the Potten family helped re-open our onsite café which had closed during Covid. The café provides a safe space for people to learn skills. It’s a much loved social hub.

The family spoke to us about the importance of leaving a legacy to a place that has meant so much to them.

Having one of your family members in residential care is such an important and emotional decision. David Lewis made that easier, and we will forever be grateful for the opportunities given to our daughter.
They provide a unique setting for people to flourish and it would be terrible if, for some reason, they weren’t there anymore. Directing this gift was one way we could help to continue the work of David Lewis.”

What kind of gift can you give to David Lewis?

  • You can leave a specific donation – This means you determine the precise sum that you want to give.
  • You can leave a share of your estate – This is where you leave the remainder of your estate after your debts have been settled and any legacies you leave to other people have been paid. This helps us as it is not affected by inflation over time.
  • You can leave a specific gift – Some people choose to leave an item, such as a piece of jewelry, a painting or a property.
Thank you for considering supporting David Lewis in this most special way. For further advice on how to make your will and legacy, please
