Free will writing service 

The British Red Cross offers a free will writing service through our partnership with the National Free Wills Network. Their participating solicitors are available to help you with writing your will for free. All you need to do is request a will writing pack below and they will send a list of solicitors local to you. 

You can also opt to leave a gift donation to the British Red Cross. By leaving a gift in your will to the British Red Cross, you will help us be there for people in urgent need.   

Your gift will leave behind a symbol of hope for the future. From responding to an emergency or being a vital lifeline to families during a natural disaster, we will be there. And so will you.  

We partner with the National Free Wills Network, whose participating solicitors will help you write your will for free. When you request a pack, they will send you a list of solicitors local to you.
