Will Aid is simple. You waive your fee for writing a basic Will – instead you invite your client to make a similar donation to the Will Aid charities.
In brief: the feel-good factor of supporting good causes, plus the opportunity to promote your practice and meet new clients.
Will Aid’s partners are nine leading UK charities who transform the lives of vulnerable people at home and around the world.
"The Will Aid scheme has given us the opportunity to promote our department and welcome new clients from the local area. The scheme not only enables us give something back to the local community, but also enables us to help raise money for worthy causes. Will Aid has brought in numerous clients and in turn referrals from their colleagues and families. This has had a positive impact on our PR. "- Andrew Jones, Mackrell Turner Garrett
