Free will writing initiative continues in 2023

Free Wills Month is back this month offering those aged 55 and over the opportunity to have a will drafted or updated free of charge.

For most people writing a will is certainly not something they think of day in and day out so initiatives like this really help to bring this important topic to the forefront of people’s minds and to strike an action. So, why not jump at the opportunity and have a simple will drafted for free this March by a volunteer solicitor?

Hundreds of solicitors are getting involved with the campaign led by a group of charities. Visit and type in your postcode to find out the solicitors who are taking part in your local area. You can book an appointment directly through the website with a solicitor of your choice.

By getting involved with the initiative, you’re not only benefitting from having a free will professionally written for you, you are also supporting the initiative run by charitable organisations like the Samaritans, The Salvation Army, Lifeboats, the British Hearth Foundation and more.

Check out their website for more information and to register to be sent a reminder prior to the start of every Free Wills Month, taking place twice a year – in March and in October.

Remember, as well as completing a will, you should separately update your Expression of Wish to say where you’d like any payments from your pension to go if you die before you claim them. This cannot be covered in your will.

To complete your Expression of Wish, download and complete the ‘Expression of Wish form stating the person (people, or organisation) you wish to benefit.
