Leave a legacy in your will

Switchback offers the Trainees we work with the support they need for as long as they need it. That means they can come back to us when things get tough, wobbly, or they just need a chat with a friendly face. Our open-ended, unconditional support is what makes Switchback different – and by leaving a gift in your will, you can help us continue to make that support available for as long as it’s needed.

Leaving a gift in your will is a personal decision, but one which gives you control after you have gone. Getting the right advice is important, and a good place to start is with the Government’s guide to leaving a legacy gift.

If you do choose to support Switchback in this way, then we promise to use it in the best possible way to help more young adult offenders live life completely differently.

If you let us know about your decision, we can keep you updated as often or as little as you like as to how we are supporting Trainees. You can change your mind about your gift at any time.

If you’re interested in discussing leaving a gift to Switchback in your will, then please call us on 020 7650 8989 or drop us an email at hayley@switchback.org.uk. We look forward to hearing from you!
