Please note that our team is working remotely following the UK government’s guidance relating to the COVID-19 outbreak. We’re still very much on hand to assist with your queries relating to donations. The most efficient way to donate just now is online or via bank transfer. Unfortunately, we can’t take donations over the phone at the moment or process donations sent through the post. Thank you for your patience and support.

All money donated comes directly to the Patrick Wild Centre and helps us get closer to finding effective treatments for autism, fragile X syndrome and intellectual disabilities.

Give In Your Will

Would you consider leaving a legacy to the Patrick Wild Centre in your Will? A legacy in most instances is tax free and will reduce any inheritance tax burden on your estate. Our Legacy Manager would be delighted to discuss this with you; please get in touch at +44 (0)131 650 9637 or  for more information.

We recommend that you seek advice from a solicitor before you make or update your Will.
