Please remember Safer Medicines Trust in your will. Because the Trust is tax-exempt, 100% of your legacy will go towards our vital work to create a new future for medical research that focuses on strategies more likely to result in effective cures for human disease - without a cost to animals.
We receive no corporate or Government funding. The Trust's work is only possible because of supporters who include Safer Medicines Trust in their thoughts at the same time as they make provision for their loved ones.
