Get your will written for free
National Free Wills Network
As a member of the National Free Wills Network, we can offer individuals the opportunity to have their wills written free of charge. The service is valid to make or amend a simple will, or simple mirror wills for couples. There is absolutely no obligation to include a gift to Breast Cancer Now in your will; however, we hope that our supporters will consider this after loved ones have been provided for.
What happens next?
If you click the button below and fill in your details on our online form, the National Free Wills Network will get in touch and send you details of solicitors in your area that are taking part in the scheme. You will also receive a step-by-step guide to getting your will written or updated for free.
Bequeathed, free online will service
If you’re looking for a convenient way to write or update your will, you can use our free online will writing service, Will For Good, offered through our partnership with Bequeathed and available to people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
To start, create your account with Bequeathed and follow the simple steps to create a draft will.
You’ll need to answer some initial online interview questions to help gather all the information required to make your will. It takes around 20 minutes and the Bequeathed team is online to help. You’ll be given clear guidance every step of the way.
Once you’ve completed the online interview, you’ll be given a 30-minute appointment with an accredited legal firm. Choose phone or video call, your home or their office*. Here you can discuss your situation and wishes, and check that the will caters for your needs.
There is never any charge for a standard will, which is suitable for most people. However, if your circumstances are complex, and you require further legal advice, the legal firm will explain what’s needed and give you a quote to consider.
Once your will is completed, the firm will help you with getting it signed and witnessed, and store it for you, also completely free of charge.
Having an up-to-date will is the only way to make sure the people and causes you care about are looked after, after you’re gone. There is absolutely no obligation to include a gift to Breast Cancer Now in your will; however, we hope that some people will consider this after loved ones have been provided for.
*Please note that due to the continuing coronavirus situation, all appointments are being conducted via telephone/video call.
Will For Good, telephone alternative
You can also have your Will For Good written over the phone; this service is available to people across the UK, including Scotland.
You’ll need an email address to use this service as the confirmation of your appointment will be emailed to you, along with details of the interview, links to information and a checklist you can use to prepare for the call. The email will also contain options to reschedule or cancel your call if needed.
You’ll receive an automatic reminder email 24 hours and 1 hour before your call. The initial interview will last for no more than 45 minutes, and will take place via Zoom, though you can request to call a telephone number if you prefer.
Once you’ve answered your interview questions, you will receive an email introducing you to the legal firm of your choice who will conduct your free 30-minute legal appointment, as with the online service.
Once your Will For Good is completed, the firm will help you with getting it signed and witnessed, and store it for you, also completely free of charge.
As with all our free will-writing services, there is absolutely no obligation to include a gift to Breast Cancer Now in your will, although some people may wish to consider this after loved ones have been provided for.
A gift in your will can help make sure no-one in the future goes through breast cancer alone, and no-one loses someone they love.
