Alzheimer Scotland is the leading dementia organisation in Scotland.


We need to raise £15,000 every single day to provide vital support for people with dementia those who care for them across the country, from Shetland to Stranraer.

Gifts in wills or legacies are hugely important to us in maintaining and developing all aspects of our work including:

 Tell us about your legacy plans

If you have chosen to include a gift to Alzheimer Scotland in your Will, we would love to know, so that we can thank you properly and ensure that we keep in touch in the way you choose.

You are under no obligation to tell us what you have decided to leave Alzheimer Scotland in your Will, but we do like to thank those generous supporters who are kind enough to remember us in this way.

If you wish to tell us your intentions, please complete the notification form and return it to us at the address on the form.  You can also find a printed blank copy of the form in our Legacy Pack which includes other useful information about planning your will and shows the good use to which we will put your legacy.
