Are you interested in using your legal skills for good causes? In November 2012, around 1,400 UK solicitors took part in Will Aid, helping nearly 24,000 new clients write wills and raising over £2 million for charity. Better still, 85% of participating solicitors reported that joining Will Aid gained them fee-earning business, as well as positive local publicity*.

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.
"In my experience, Will Aid provides a new client base who may well not otherwise make Wills, for example, people who have young families and wish to appoint guardians. Once an individual has made a Will with a particular solicitor it forms the basis of a lasting relationship for their future legal needs."- Naomi Pinder, Quality Solicitors Jackson & Canter, Merseyside
