Leave a gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your will to St Mungo's is a special way to support people experiencing homelessness rebuild their lives.

Every night St Mungo’s offers a bed and support to more than 2,800 people in need. A gift in your will could help reach more people sleeping rough or at risk of homelessness, and help safeguard existing services for the future.

We understand that the journey out of homelessness is about more than just a roof over someone’s head, and we're here every step of the way.

Yvonne, Gifts in Wills supporter shares why she decided to leave a gift in her will:

How to leave a gift

A gift to St Mungo's can be as small or large as you like. Leaving 1% of your estate can make a big difference. When leaving a gift you will need to make a note of our name, address and registered charity number:

St Mungo Community Housing Association
3 Thomas More Square
Tower Hill

Registered Charity Number: 1149085.

It is simple to add a change to an existing will by using a codicil form Codicil Form (PDF), which you can use for simple changes.

For more complex changes we would recommend you consult with your solicitor.

The simplest way to leave us a gift is to write a new will. Once a new will is written, it makes any wills made by the same person in the past void.

You can visit the Remember A Charity website to find a solicitor in your local area. Your solicitor will be able to advise you on leaving gifts to charities when making a will.
