Legacy Events

Our Change the Future events are a great way to find out more about how gifts in wills make a difference to children in the UK and all around the world.

Around 13% of our income comes from donations that supporters like you have left in their wills, making a lasting commitment to children.

Each event highlights various areas of Save the Children’s work, and offers an opportunity to hear from our incredible Humanitarian and UK Programmes staff, as well as volunteers who have visited our programmes in person. 

Our upcoming Change the Future events, which are free to attend and held at venues, are listed below. 

For more information, and to book your place, please email giftsinwills@savethechildren.org.uk
