Leaving a gift in your Will

By leaving a gift in your Will, you can help make sure that ARCOS is here for even more people in the future. Making a Will often remains on a to-do list. More than two-thirds of people don’t have one. Perhaps it feels like something to deal with later in life or it seems too complicated or there simply is not enough time.

But it is a relatively simple process and ensures your wishes are clear and will be followed. We would advise anyone thinking of making a Will to contact a solicitor. 

They will be able to guide you every step of the way. Once loved ones, family and friends have been provided for, you may also want to consider helping a charity or cause you care about. 

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


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

ARCOS (Association for Rehabilitation of Communication and Oral Skills), Registered Number: 1007416, Hatherton Lodge, Avenue Road, MALVERN, WR14 3AG.

Types of Gifts

Every legacy gift we receive is really important to us. Here are a couple of options for the type of gift you can make:

  • A share of your estate: Giving a percentage share of your estate once all other legacies and expenses have been settled. This is the most valuable type of gift as it retains its value over time. This is called a ‘residuary gift’. Just 1% of your estate can make a huge difference to our work.
  • A fixed sum of money: It can be any amount from a few pounds to thousands of pounds. This is called a ‘pecuniary gift’.

Our promise to you when you put a gift in your Will to ARCOS

  • We will answer any questions honestly and quickly.
  • We will not put you under pressure – this is a big decision so please decide in your own time.
  • Your loved ones come first – we respect that and will not try to change it.
  • We will use your special gift wisely and effectively.
  • You do not have to tell us your decision – we respect your right to privacy.
  • You can come and see our service first hand – just let us know.
  • If you want your gift to be spent in an area that is special to you, we will arrange it .
