Free will writing service

The British Red Cross is offering supporters the opportunity to have a free simple will written by a local solicitor, through the National Free Wills Network.

How it works

The Red Cross will pay the solicitor a special discounted rate for writing a simple will. If your will is more complex, you may have to pay additional costs.

There is no obligation to leave a gift in your will to the British Red Cross if you take up this offer, though we would be very grateful if you do choose to remember us in this way. Every legacy gift we receive is a promise that help will always be there for someone in crisis.

Please note that we can only offer this service to a limited number of people each year.

How to apply

If you are interested in using the free will writing service, please let us know by emailing, or call your local Community Legacy Manager on 0300 500 0401.

We will pass your details on to the National Free Wills Network, who will send you a letter containing the details of participating local solicitors who can write you a free simple will.

You can then choose the most convenient solicitor from the information provided, and make an appointment by the deadline given in the letter.
