Will Aid needs you!
Will Aid is a national will-writing campaign that takes place every November. The scheme was designed to reinforce the need for a will while raising funds for nine of the UK’s best loved charities.
Solicitors sign up to offer some of their time and waive their usual fees and in exchange, invite will-makers to make a voluntary donation. The donations raised support the vital, life-changing work of our partner charities.
Every year, demand for Will Aid outstrips supply, so we desperately need more firms involved to help us meet this challenge.
We are anticipating that the demand for our services will be higher than ever before as the Coronavirus outbreak has made even more people want to get their affairs in order.
How is Will Aid beneficial for you?
Since Will Aid was founded in 1988, it has helped more than 300,000 people write their will and enabled the legal profession to raise over £21 million for good causes.
Will Aid is a great opportunity to give back to your community and raise your profile and reputation.
Will Aid has lots of loyal participating firms who praise the initiative for helping them generate positive local publicity as well as introducing them to valuable new clients.

You can sign up to take part in our 2020 campaign now!
It is easy to sign up to and you can pledge as little or as much time as you want. The Will Aid team is here to support you and ensure taking part in the scheme is as easy as possible so you can focus on writing wills.
Solicitors waive their fees for writing a basic single will or basic pair of mirror wills, instead the client is asked to make a voluntary donation to Will Aid.
Any work carried out in addition to a basic will can be charged separately and paid to the legal firm.
