To include this charity in your Will, simply give your solicitor or Will writer the following details:

Charity address: 3 Silverburn Cottages, Silverburn Park, Leven, Fife. KY8 5PU
Charity Number: SC022263
We support people with severe mental health conditions to better self-manage their conditions and prepare for, enter and sustain paid employment (or other meaningful activities such as volunteering or further education).
Our services have been recognized nationally and internationally – winning the Centre for Social Justice Awards in 2019 and having our programmes replicated as far afield as Australia.
We are, however, reliant on grant funding and donations to operate and to try and change that and become more financially self-sufficient we have taken on a long-term lease of a beautiful 27-acre public park on the Fife Coastal Path – Silverburn Park. Silverburn was originally gifted by a local family to the People of Levenmouth and we have taken on its stewardship, providing volunteering, training and employment opportunities for people with mental health conditions through the creation of a camping/glamping site, café and events programme.
Our next ambitious step is the restoration of the B-listed former flax mill in the Park, to become a community hub and visitor centre, creating more economic opportunities and bringing heritage to life as well as generating an income to cover our core work.
Legacies from wills support people who have been sidelined from everyday life due to the severity of their mental health conditions and help us to help them restore aspirations, and overcome those daily challenges, through to gaining and sustaining paid employment and all the benefits that come with that status.
