Leaving a Legacy

Did you know that Erskine needs to raise over £10 million per year to keep running? By leaving a gift in your will you would be leaving a legacy that will carry on long after you’ve gone.

Through a gift in your Will, you could provide a brighter future for our Veterans and give them a reason to smile. Even just 1% of your estate will make a huge difference.



Making a Difference

Legacies help us provide further beds, specialist nurses and equipment and to extend our recreational programme to benefit all our veterans. Independence is precious to the people we care for and your gift can help us purchase physiotherapy equipment which allows greater access to mobility. It also helps pay for our Activity Centre, which helps support younger Veterans living in the community, by offering them companionship and the opportunity to learn new skills. 83% of every pound is spent directly on helping over 800 veterans every year.
