Your Will:
Helping Great Charities

Free Wills Month

Free Wills Month brings together a group of well respected charities to offer members of the public aged 55 and over the opportunity to have their simple Wills written or updated free of charge by using participating solicitors in selected locations around England and Wales.

The Free Wills Month campaign runs during October but appointments are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. Once a participating law firm is fully booked, they will be removed from the website. When all appointments are booked the campaign will close.

To take part simply complete the two step process – postcode first then a few more details later.

Once you’ve completed step two just select a convenient solicitor and call them to book your appointment, mentioning Free Wills Month – you have to call during October before the campaign closes but your appointment can be at a later date if convenient for you and the solicitor.

The charities behind Free Wills Month

The charities supporting Free Wills Month work for a variety of causes. Their vital services protect and enrich the lives of many thousands, if not millions of people every day.

Most UK charities depend on legacies for up to half their income – by taking part in a Free Wills Month campaign you could help one or more of these worthy causes.

    FAQs

    How does the campaign work?

    Members of the public aged 55 and over contact one of the firms of solicitors taking part in a Free Wills Month campaign during the designated month to request an appointment.

    The solicitor will help to draw up a Will that accurately reflects the wishes of the individual or couple. Those taking up the offer are under no obligation to leave a gift to one of the Free Wills Month charities, however, we earnestly hope that many will see this as a chance to help their favourite cause.

    Who is the campaign open to?

    Free Wills Month is intended for individuals or couples aged 55 and over. In the case of couples making ‘mirror’ Wills, it is sufficient that one has reached the age of 55.

    Do the charities get a copy of each Will?

    No. The only documentation that is sent on to us is the confidential declaration form which asks questions such as where people heard of the campaign, their age and whether or not they have left a gift to one or more of the Free Wills Month charities.

    What happens if a Will is complicated?

    We have agreed that the campaign will cover the writing of ‘simple’ Wills. If your Will needs some more work, the solicitor may ask you to pay the balance yourself, however, most people only require simple Wills.
