Will Aid is a special partnership between the legal profession and nine of the UK's best-loved charities. Every November, participating solicitors waive their fee for writing a basic Will. Instead, they invite their clients to make a donation to Will Aid. Each year, thousands of people use the Will Aid scheme. They not only gain peace of mind by writing their Will, they help fund life-changing charity work at the same time.
Will Aid's has been running for 25 years. During that time over 250,000 people have made a Will through the scheme and got the peace of mind that comes from knowing that their loved ones are protected if the worst happens. The scheme has raised an amazing £13.6m for the vital work of the Will Aid charities in the UK and around the world.
Will Aid has made a real difference for 25 years – both to the work of the charities we’ve supported and to the people our participating solicitors have helped to make a Will. Since 1988, Will Aid has raised over £13 million to help transform people’s lives in the UK and around the world. You can read some of those people’s stories in the the Will Aid charities section of this site. Every donation made is sure to help change lives for the better.
Will Aid is proud to be endorsed by the Probate Section of the Law Society and celebrity supporters including Annette Crosbie, Dame Judi Dench and Graham Norton.
"Although we had a Will but it was very old. Our financial situation had changed and the children had grown up so it was time to update it. The solicitor was knowledgeable, approachable, and very easy to talk to. I’d recommend that people get their Will up to date through Will Aid. It puts your mind at rest and charities benefit."- Lesley Matthews
