Writing your will

Make sure that your wishes are followed and reduce worry for your loved ones at a very stressful time.

A will is one of the simplest ways to safeguard the future of your family and friends. After you’ve taken care of the people closest to you, a small gift in your will could make a huge difference.

Download our will information booklet for more information and suggested wording to include in your will.

We strongly recommend that you consult a solicitor or a STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) qualified will-writer when you make your will, to ensure it is accurate and reflects your wishes. The Law Society locator can help you find a local solicitor. Please note that the law on making wills varies between parts of the UK.
