Leave a gift in your will

A gift in your Will can help us keep our promise to future generations of young people with complex disabilities.


Why gifts in Wills are so important to National Star

Each year more and more young people rely on National Star for support. Thanks to medical advances more children are living with complex and profound disabilities. We need to continue to invest in specialist facilities, technology and expertise. That way we can continue to provide the right environments to enable them to live fulfilling lives.

Mr F, who lives in Cheltenham, has let us know that he will be leaving a gift in his Will to our charity.

We’re grateful to Mr F, a keen walker, who came across our charity as he enjoyed walks on Leckhampton Hill, a beautiful walks near our Ullenwood campus.

‘Many families would not be able to manage without your intervention,’ said Mr F, when he contacted us.

‘I fancied the idea of supporting a small number of charities, including National Star. I liked the idea of helping to continue your good work, especially after watching the Unbreakables on the television. There are tax efficient advantages to leaving a charitable legacy too and I was keen to make the most of them,’ he added.
