Leaving a gift to DLF in your will is a way of ensuring that we will be able to go on helping the increasing number of older and disabled people who need our services in years to come.
DLF reaches over 1 million people annually with information that adds to their independence, personal dignity and quality of life. Those we help include adults with disabilites or age-related conditions, servicemen and women invalided out of the forces, and parents of disabled children. We are also a vital resource for carers and health professionals.
Our expert advice might enable a person to perform a simple daily task - e.g. bathing or boiling a kettle - that had previously been beyond them. It could even keep them secure and happy in their own home when residential care would, otherwise, have seemed the only option.
Our work is dependent upon the generosity of our supporters. Gifts left in wills (legacies) are especially important and are directly responsible for our being able to help one in every four enquirers. Such gifts may be big or small, but their effect is life changing.
Legacies are responsible for our being able to provide enquirers with information on how to live independently, safely and with dignity at home.
Your gift to the future will help ensure that our life-changing advice services remain available to all who need them, benefitting over 2 million older and disabled people and their carers throughout the UK every year.
