Give a gift in your Will

Leave a gift of hope

After considering your loved ones, you may wish to leave a gift in your Will, to Action Mental Health.

1 in 5 people in Northern Ireland suffer from mental ill-health. By leaving us a gift in your Will, you will ensure Action Mental Health is able to be there for these people. Your gift will also help secure services to improve the mental well-being of future generations, across Northern Ireland.

Big or small, every gift in every Will really does make a difference. It is also really easy to do.

How to leave a gift:

  • Visit your solicitor to make or amend your will
  • How you phrase your will depends on what type of gift you want to make to Action Mental Health
  • If you have already included Action Mental Health in your will, we are extremely grateful and would love it if you could let us know

If you decide to leave a gift to Action Mental Health, please include the correct charity name and address details. Including a charity number is good practice, in case a charity merges or changes its name. Action Mental Health’s details are:

Action Mental Health, accepted as a charity by the Inland Revenue under reference XN47959. Registered in Northern Ireland: 27 Jubilee Road, Newtownards BT23 4YH. Company No. NI5568. Registered with the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland NIC100753.

Types of gifts you can leave in your will:

  • A residuary gift: otherwise known as a share of your estate. This is when you give a portion of what you own to Action Mental Health.
  • Pecuniary gift (cash sum): a pecuniary gift can be a cash gift of any amount.
  • A specific gift: such as property, jewellery, or any other items of worth.

Leaving a gift to Action Mental Health could reduce your Inheritance Tax Bill and in certain circumstances reduce the rate of Inheritance Tax payable. You can find more information on Inheritance Tax on the HMRC website at or by talking to your solicitor.

Useful wording:
If you would like to leave a gift to Action Mental Health in your will, we suggest the following wording which can be used, or amended, by your will writer.

‘I bequeath to Action Mental Health the sum of £ ….. or, all/part of the residue of my estate, to be applied to general purposes or (insert area of Action Mental Health’s work) and I declare that the receipt of the Honorary Treasurer, or Legacy Officer shall be sufficient discharge to my Executors’
