If you don’t have a solicitor, you can get your Will written for free through one of our Will writing partners. By using this service, you are under no obligation to leave a gift in your Will to Yorkshire Cancer Research, but, of course, we would be extremely grateful if you did.
Who can use the Free Will writing service?
The service is available to anyone over 18 years old living in England or Wales.
What if I need a more complex Will?
The Wills we offer through our Will writing partners are for standard Wills only and any additional requirements may come at an additional cost. As a charity, we are very careful how we spend our money so we have fixed fees for the services agreed with our partners. Our Will writing partners will be able to answer any queries you may have regarding their services. If your needs are complex, we recommend speaking to a solicitor. You can find a local solicitor by visiting the Law Society website, lawsociety.co.uk.
A member of The Goodwill Partnership team will get in touch to arrange a phone or Facetime / Skype video appointment at a time that’s convenient to you. Please note, The Goodwill Partnership are not currently able to offer home visit appointments due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
