Your legacy is an extraordinary opportunity to make a lasting difference and give something back to your community.

Whatever your age or circumstances, leaving a will ensures that your wishes, your loved ones and the causes you care about are provided for after you are gone.

We are extremely grateful to those who have left us a bequest, or have included a gift to us in their will. There are a number of ways to do this:

If you are in one of the following groups of people, you should speak with a traditional solicitor face to face:

  • If you have a high value estate (details here) or complex requirements;
  • Where there is a worry due to medication or a dementia related illness we always suggest speaking with a solicitor face to face.
  • If you would simply rather speak with a solicitor!

You can find a solicitor at the Law Society.

When a will is made through Make a Will Online, we are told some information about this: when a will was made, the existence of any gifts and how much. Where you provide consent, we also learn your contact details so we can say thank you. We recognise some supporters want to keep this private. If you want to be completely anonymous so that we do not get to know a will has been made, you can do this by making a will using this link to make a will online. Whatever you choose to do – we would like to thank you for your generosity and support.
