Each one of us wants the best for someone, whether it’s for family, friends or neighbours. At Crimestoppers we believe that people should be able to live without the fear of crime - but sadly that is not the case for all. Very often they are the most vulnerable living within our communities: the young, elderly, people from ethnic minorities and those with disabilities.
Each day over 1,500 people contact us with information about crime against people like ourselves – and each day we makes a difference to people’s lives.
As a charity, we have reached the next stage in our fight against crime, where our aim is for everyone, especially those most hard to reach, to benefit from contacting us with information that brings criminals to justice.
It’s a big challenge – but it’s one we want to tackle. A gift in your Will – no matter how small – really will help us achieve that ambition.
Anyone can leave a legacy
Anyone can choose to support our work in their Will or a codicil. Of course you will want to care for your family and friends, but it's also possible to remember us too simply by adding a short paragraph into the same Will. Through leaving a legacy to Crimestoppers you are also leaving a legacy to look after the communities in which your family and friends live.
Find out more about what's involved in leaving a legacy and make a pledge for a better future.
This unique gift is one that will make an incredible difference especially to the lives of vulnerable people living with the threat of crime.
Remember a Charity Week
Only seven percent of people in the UK remember a charity in their Will – compared to 75 percent who support their favourite charities during their lifetime. Though extraordinary in some ways, the seven percent is made up of everyday people like us who feel that they’d like to give something back – after they’ve taken care of their family and those closest to them.
Remember A Charity was formed in 2000 and now has over 140 of the UK’s favourite charities, who work together to encourage more people to consider leaving a charitable gift in their Will, once they’ve looked after their family and friends. Together, we aim to do what no single charity can do alone, making legacy giving a social norm.
