We can help you have peace of mind by using our Will Writing Service, brought to you in partnership with local solicitors.
Do you have a Will?
If you do, you’ll have peace of mind from knowing that those you love will be provided for in accordance with your wishes.
If you don’t have a Will in place at the time you die you will be intestate, which means that the law will decide how your estate is to be shared out.
This can result in lenghty legal delays in sorting out what should be done with your property. Worse still the property may go to the State rather than those neasest and dearest to you.
Your Will should reflect your true wishes and take account of your changing circumstances.
What is the Will Writing Service?
We understand that it can be difficult to think about what may happen when you die.
You may be worried that you don’t know how to go about making a Will, or that it will be expensive.
We believe that it is important that you have a Will in place. In our experience, families often draw great comfort from knowing that they are carrying out your last wishes.
We are working in partnership with local participating solicitors throughout the city and county. They will draw up a basic Will for you providing their services free of charge, meaning you pay us a reduced rate to help us achieve our charitable aims.

Leaving a legacy
We can only achieve as much as we do through the donations which supporters leave us in their Wills. Many of these are people that we have helped in later life.
Once you are happy that your family and friends are taken care of, we hope that you will feel inspired to leave a legacy towards the continuation of our work.
When you have your basic Will written mention to the solicitor that you wish to leave a legacy to us and they will include your bequest in your Will.
