October is 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, Northern Ireland and Wales.
An up to date Will written by a solicitor ensures your wishes are respected. It also avoids difficult decisions and legal complications for your loved ones. Free Wills Month allows you to provide for family and friends and leave a gift to your chosen charities too.
A gift in your Will costs you nothing now but can make a difference for years to come.
To take part in Free Wills Month please scroll down and fill in a few details, we'll only contact you about this Free Wills Month campaign (unless you choose further contact from the charities). There's more information about the charities sponsoring the campaign - they are doing this in the hope that people will consider leaving a gift in their Will to one or more of them (it's entirely up to you, there is no obligation). The next step is picking a convenient solicitor from the list or map and calling them to book an appontment.
Appointments are limited and available on a first come first served basis, please call as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
The charities supporting Free Wills Month work for a variety of causes. Their vital services protect and enrich the lives of 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.
Please enter your details below to find the participating charities and solicitors near you.
Please select which charities you will be interested in helping.
It looks like you haven't chosen a preferred charity. Unsure? That's ok, you can always decide later and you will be under no obligation at any stage to leave a gift. However, please bear in mind that it is these charities that will be paying for your Will to be written and they depend on the generous support of people like you. Any gift, however small, will help them continue their amazing work.
Arrange an appointment with one of your local solicitors listed below.

Please could you spare one more moment to let us know which charities you would be most interested in supporting in your Will.
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.
Appointments are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis. Once all available appointments are booked the campaign will close, this may be before the end of the campaigning month.
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.
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.
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.
