Leave a gift in your will

How will you leave your mark on the world? Our vision is to see every man, woman and child free from modern slavery and every perpetrator brought to justice – yet we know there is still a way to go to reach a world without slavery. If you are able to leave a gift to Justice and Care in your will, no matter how big or small, you will help to protect generations to come from the brutality of modern slavery.

We understand that your loved ones should always come first, and that pledging a gift in your will is a very personal decision. If you do choose to leave a gift to Justice and Care in your will, you will be helping survivors like Salma. See here to learn more about our work and the invaluable difference your gift will make.

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions below to find out more about how to leave a gift in your will. If you would like to speak to one of our team, please get in touch and we would be happy to help.

Thank you for considering leaving a legacy gift to Justice and Care. Together we can bring hope to victims of modern slavery.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • We will not stop in the fight against modern slavery. So far, we have helped to free more than 5,000 men, women and children from exploitation and reached more than 180,000 of the most vulnerable people, educating them on the risks of trafficking. We cannot stop there – we will fight slavery until it no longer exists. Gifts in wills are vital for this and will help us support survivors for years to come, bringing true and lasting transformation.

  • To include Justice and Care in your will we recommend speaking with a practising solicitor who can advise you and draft your will to include the appropriate wording for you. You will need to include the following information:


    Justice and Care

    10 Queen Street Place


    EC4R 1AG


    Registered charity numbers: 1133829 (England and Wales) and SC042389 (Scotland)


    To ensure your gift will reach us in the future (for example if details, such as the name of the charity, were to change), we would recommend including some wording to confirm you still wish the gift to be made in those circumstances – a solicitor will be able to help you with this.

  • To update your will, you can speak to your solicitor about adding a codicil (the legal term for an amendment to a will). If you would like to make more substantial changes you could ask your solicitor to draft a new will for you.

  • There are three types of gifts you can leave to your loved ones and the causes you care about:


    Pecuniary Gift: a gift of a fixed amount of money

    Specific Gift: a gift of a particular item or asset (this could be land, buildings, shares, or personal possessions such as jewellery or artwork, etc)

    Residuary Gift: a gift of a share of your estate (after any debts have been paid off and other gifts have been made)

  • There are two key ways that leaving a gift to a charity can help reduce the impact of inheritance tax on your estate:


    • The value of any gift to a qualifying charity will be taken off the value of your estate before inheritance tax is calculated; and
    • If 10 percent or more of your net taxable estate is left to charity, your estate may qualify for a reduced rate of inheritance tax (currently 36% rather than the usual 40%).


    If you would like to find out more about making a gift to charity that would allow your estate to qualify for the reduced inheritance tax rate, we would recommend speaking with a solicitor, who can advise you on this and help you with making sure the appropriate wording is included in your will.

  • Yes, of course. Please get in touch with us at hello@justiceandcare.org and we can help you mark and remember the life of a loved one through a transformative gift.

  • Once you have written your will, you do not need to do anything else. However, getting in touch to let us know is very helpful and we would love to thank you for your generous support.
