Leaving a Gift in your Will

Gifts in Wills or legacies play a vital role in enabling the QNI to improve the nursing care people receive in the home.

Whilst providing for you loved ones will of course take priority, we hope that once you have looked after them, you would consider leaving the QNI a gift in your Will. 

Donating in Memory

Donating in memory of a loved one is a way to celebrate their life, whilst helping the QNI improving the nursing care of others in future.

 If you would like to remember a loved one in this way, you can make the arrangements through a funeral director.

Alternatively, please contact us for a Donate in Memory form on 020 7549 1400 or

 If you would prefer donations to be made to the QNI in your memory, rather than receiving floral tributes, it is a good idea to let your executors know of your wishes or to include it in the details about your funeral.
