The gift of a lifetime

Leaving a gift in your Will to Father Hudson's Care

“Until I started coming to the group, I didn’t realise I was lonely. But I was.
“It really hit home when I got back from three weeks at my son’s. I was surrounded by people coming and going, grandchildren, family, their friends. When I got home and opened the front door the silence really hit me.
“I thought, if I stood here and screamed, no one would hear me. No one would come. Thank God for Young at Heart!”
June, Young at Heart, Meir

Young at Heart offers social groups, day trips, help at home and activities to help older people stay happy and healthy, maintain links to their community, meet new people and create lasting friendships.

This work was made possible thanks to someone leaving us a gift in their Will. Is this something you can consider?


Father Hudson’s Care reaches out in love and friendship to provide support, advice and care to people who need our help. We offer services to people from all walks of life who are experiencing difficulties. 

We don’t see problems or labels, but people with lifetimes of experiences that shape who they are, and ambitions and dreams that guide who they will become. We work with them, understand their past and their vision for the future, and provide support to help them fulfil their goals.

We couldn’t do this without you.

A gift in your Will is one of the most precious gifts you could give. Anyone can leave a gift, no matter how large or small, and every donation will help us care for others. Every gift can help change someone’s world. 

While we believe everybody should make a Will, what you put into that Will will be personal to you. It is your Will. It may help you ensure your loved ones are provided for in the future. Many people also choose to support a cause that is close to their hearts. People leave set amounts of money or a percentage of their estate, as well as items including houses, cars and shares.

Leaving a gift in your Will to Father Hudson’s Care can transform lives by enabling us to help people overcome barriers, empowering them to live a full and meaningful life of their choosing.

This special gift could:

  • Help a disabled person live a fulfilling, independent life
  • Provide specialist care to older people living with dementia
  • Support a homeless person to make a fresh start
  • Help a family experiencing problems to overcome their difficulties, strengthen their relationships, and rebuild their lives together
  • Provide foster carers with training and support to nurture the young person in their care
  • Help an older person maintain links with their community and form new friendships, keeping them healthy, independent and happy
  • Support a destitute migrant to rebuild their life
  • Help someone separated from their family of origin to trace their history and connect with their birth relatives
  • Provide someone living in poverty with food and warm clothing.

/media/getinvolved/library/th-w-text.jpgLeaving a gift in your Will won’t affect you financially now, but it will give you peace of mind, knowing the people you care about are supported after your death. It will one day make a vital difference to the men, women and children we work with.

To find out more about how you can make a lasting gift to others by leaving us a gift in your Will, please call the Fundraising Team on 01675 434000.

Please let us know if you decide to add Father Hudson’s Care to your Will. And if you do, please ensure you use our legal name, Father Hudson’s Society, and our registered charity number, 512992, to avoid any confusion.

Your gift will be used according to your stated wishes, or applied to any aspect of Father Hudson’s Care according to need.
