- Sign up by selecting the Safer Living Foundation as your chosen charity here
- When shopping online, search for your chosen retailer on the Give as You Live website and click the link to the retailer – this way Give as You Live will track your purchase and make an automatic donation to our charity

Type of gifts
There are three main types of gift you can leave to the SLF in your Will.
We suggest you speak to someone with legal knowledge to help you make the decision that’s right for you. Every gift makes a different to our charity and we want you to leave the right gift for your circumstances.
- A Residuary Gift
This is where you set aside a portion of all your remaining estate after funeral expenses, debts and other gifts in the Will have been paid.
- A Pecuniary Gift
This is a gift of a specified sum of money. All gifts make a real different to the charity, but it’s worth remembering that the eventual value of this type of gift is likely to be impacted by inflation.
- A Specific Gift
This is a gift of a specific, named item. For example, it could be property or car.
The wording needed:
“I give the sum of £ (or specific percentage of estate) to the Safer Living Foundation (registered charity number 1155788). I declare that the receipt of the honorary treasurer, or other proper officer of the said charity, shall be a full and sufficient discharge for the said legacy. in the event the aforesaid charity shall no longer exist at the date of my death, I give the legacy to (other registered charity).
Your gift will help us prevent future victims of sexual abuse and create a safer society.
When you have had time to reflect and discuss your decision with those close to you, we’d love to know your intentions as it will help us plan for the future. So, if you wish, please let us know via email.
