A will is a legal document that gives instructions about who you want to inherit your money and possessions. Writing a will makes sure that what you leave when you die goes to the people you want it to.
Charity will-writing services
Some charities offer a free will-writing service. They hope you will use your will to leave them a gift, but you don’t have to. This gift is called a legacy. If you use a will-writing service, it’s always a good idea to speak to an independent solicitor.
There are different ways of finding charity will-writing services:
- Contact a charity to find out if it offers a free will-making service.
- Contact a free or low-cost charity will-writing service such as willaid.org.uk and willreliefscotland.co.uk
- For a list of charities that offer a free annual will-making service to people aged 55 and over, visit freewillsmonth.org.uk
