Legacy FAQs and useful links

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity) has helped to fund research that has changed the way we treat young people like Teigan (above), who took part in a pioneering gene therapy trial to treat her rare immunodeficiency. Such research has been made possible, in part, thanks to the vital funding received from those who have left a gift in their Will.

Why does GOSH Charity offer free Will-writing services?

We offer free Will-writing services to help make it easier for you to write or update your Will. Many people who use the services also choose to support us by including a gift in their Will to GOSH Charity.
