Leave a Legacy

Thank you for considering leaving Beat a gift in your Will. Legacy donations help us to plan our long term work and continue to expand our support to end the pain and suffering caused by eating disorders.

As a one time carer for someone with an eating disorder, I benefited enormously from the Beat services and I feel very strongly that Beat’s work is both vital and unique. By giving them a bit of extra help in the future, I hope that other carers like me will be able to cope better, and lives might be saved as a result.

What do you want the future to look like for people affected by Eating Disorders?

Your support will mean we can continue to be here for families long in to the future, offering support, guidance and tools for recovery.

Your support will help us to continue to equip teachers, health care professionals and others on the frontline of our communities to spot the early signs of eating disorders and know how to offer help.

Your support will help Beat to push for real change from government and the NHS as we continue to stress the need for easily accessible, good quality, timely treatment for everyone who needs it.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of the team who will be happy to chat through any queries you have. But we have also included some questions and answers below to help as a guide when thinking about leaving a gift.

What types of gifts can you leave?

There are different ways you can leave money in your Will:

  • A share of your estate. After you’ve provided for your family and friends you can leave a share or the remainder of your estate to Beat. This is called a ‘residuary gift’.
  • A ‘pecuniary gift’. This is a gift of an exact sum of money.
  • A specific gift - a possession that you’d like to leave to Beat.
How can I leave a gift in my Will?

Leaving a legacy is an important decision but it doesn’t have to be a complicated one. Here’s the basics of making a gift in your Will:

  • State in your Will that you would like to leave a gift to Beat. We always recommend using a solicitor or a professional Will-writer to make sure that your Will is both legal and valid
  • Include our full name and charity number to make sure the gift is made to the right place: Beat (formerly Eating Disorders Association), 1 Chalk Hill House, 19 Rosary Road, Norwich NR1 1SZ. Company Number: 2368495 Registered Charity Number: 801343 Scottish Charity Number: SC039309
  • Amend your existing Will by completing a Codicil Form available from your solicitor
