Legacies are gifts left to charities by people in their wills and are a vital source of income.

Leaving a gift to us in your will helps us to improve life for children and adults with communication and or swallowing problems.

ARCOS advises anyone making a will to take legal advice; a solicitor will be able to guide you through every step of the process and advise you on the different types of legacy you can leave.

There are two main types of legacy that you could leave us in your will:

Residuary Legacy: This is a gift of the remainder of your estate after all other gifts have been made and debts cleared.

Pecuniary Legacy: This is a gift of a fixed sum of money in your will. The value of a pecuniary legacy can change over time due to inflation.

Any bequest is tax free for ARCOS and for your estate and will not cost you anything in your lifetime.

If you wish to leave a legacy you will need to provide your solicitor with the following information:

Name of Charity: ARCOS
(Association for Rehabilitation of Communication and Oral Skills)
Registered Number:
Address: Hatherton Lodge
Avenue Road
WR14 3AG

We hope that you will consider leaving a legacy to us as a fitting testament of your support for our work.
