Thinking about Wills can be a daunting prospect. It’s not easy to think about dying, but it is important to make sure your wishes are written down so they can be carried out. Taking this step can provide a lot of comfort to your loved ones after you're gone. People put off making a Will, which sometimes means people leave it too late.

To help make this process as easy as possible for you, we have teamed up with so you can make a fully comprehensive Will for free. You can do it from the comfort of your own home in just a few simple steps with live support available if you need it. Your Will will be checked by legal experts and can be updated at any time.

When you are making your Will, please consider leaving a gift to Age UK Hammersmith and Fulham. 

A gift in your Will ensures that we can be there for the older people of the future. For your children and grandchildren when they get older.

You can leave a specific sum of money or a share in, or all of, what's left of the value of your estate after your family and friends have been taken care of.

If you already have a Will, and you want to include a gift to Age UK Hammersmith and Fulham in it, there may not be a need to rewrite it. You can ask a qualified professional such as a solicitor to add an amendment (called a codicil). As a general rule, if the change you wish to make is quite small or simple, you can use a codicil, and if the change is more significant or complex you should make a new Will.

Thank you for considering leaving a gift to Age UK Hammersmith & Fulham in your Will. We really do appreciate it.
