Freedom from Torture - A gift in your Will

A gift in your Will

Gifts in Wills provide vital funds for our work with survivors of torture.

By remembering Freedom from Torture in your Will you will help transform the lives of those who have experienced torture and persecution. You will ensure that survivors of torture will have access to the vital services they need to rebuild their lives.

You may feel that you may not have much to leave in your Will, but any gift that you chose to leave will be valuable to those we help. So, after you have given consideration to those nearest and dearest to you, you may also like to consider causes that a close to your heart, such as Freedom from Torture.

We rely heavily on legacy gifts (which make up more than 10% of our annual income) to support the many torture survivors arriving at our clinics. Your gift could be used in many ways. It could help maintain our gardening project, provide psychological therapy, music therapy, or maintain our medico-legal documentation to support survivors’ asylum applications.

One of our supporters explains why he chose to remember Freedom from Torture in his Will:

“Although I cannot stop torture being used, I can give my long term support to your work to help heal some of the wounds inflicted on these victims, and this will in a small way balance the destructive aspects of torture.”

If you would like to find out more about leaving a legacy, please call 020 7697 7788 or email legacies@freedomfromtorture.org. Alternatively, fill in the form below and we shall send you an introductory pack via email.

Are you about to leave legacy to Freedom from Torture?

Thank you for pledging a legacy to help more survivors of torture.

If you do not have a solicitor you can contact the Law Society on 020 7242 1222 and they will help you find a suitable solicitor in your area.

Your solicitor will advise you on the suitable wording to use. Our suggested wording is below:

“I give free of inheritance tax to Freedom from Torture {Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture) Registered charity number 1000340 of 111 Isledon Road, London N7 7JW [insert the details of your gift here] to be used for its charitable general purposes. I declare that the receipt of the Treasurer or duly authorised officer at Freedom from Torture shall be a full and sufficient discharge for my executors.”

If you already have a Will but wish to leave a gift to Freedom from Torture, you can do so by adding a Codicil to your existing instructions. You solicitor can help with this, or contact us for a Codicil form.

Finally, if have left a gift to us, please do let us know. Telling us your intention is not legally binding but we would like to thank you for your commitment.
