Free Will writing services

Your Will is an important document. It’s a reflection of the life you’ve lived and the values you hold. It’s your way of making sure the people you love and the causes you care about are looked after in the future.

If your wishes for your estate aren’t complex, it may be possible for you to write or update what’s known as a simple* Will for free. To make this as straightforward as possible, we’ve partnered with a number of Will writing services.

Many people who use these services choose to leave a gift to Guide Dogs in their Will, but it’s entirely up to you.

*Solicitors may have different criteria for what qualifies as a simple Will.

How to use the free Will writing services

National Free Wills Network

You can write or update your free Will in-person with a local solicitor through our partnership with the National Free Wills Network.

  1. Fill out our enquiry form to let us know you’d like to use the Free Wills Network and we’ll send you a free Wills pack which includes a list of your local solicitors who are taking part.
  2. Once you’ve received the pack, contact your chosen solicitor directly to book a face-to-face appointment at a time that’s convenient to you.
  3. At the appointment, please remember to bring your completed declaration form enclosed with the pack to get your simple Will written for free.

Unfortunately, this service isn’t currently available in the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man.

Free Wills online with Bequeathed

We’ve also partnered with a specialist online Will provider, Bequeathed, so you can choose to write your Will for free in the comfort of your own home at a pace that suits you.

  1. Visit the Bequeathed website and follow the simple steps to register and start the online questionnaire in your own time. Expert support and guidance are available throughout the process if you need help at any point.
  2. Once you’ve submitted your answers you’ll receive tailored online advice. You can choose to book a free legal appointment to discuss the advice or move straight to requesting your free simple Will.
  3. You’ll receive your Will with a summary of the advice you’ve been given, along with instructions on signing and witnessing your Will to finalise your wishes.

October is Free Wills Month

Not sure when to start thinking about your legacy? Free Wills Month takes place every year in March and October; this is a time when many people choose to write their Will.

What is Free Wills Month?

We take part in Free Wills Month, which means during March and October you can create a simple Will for free if you’re aged 55 or over. The scheme connects you with local participating solicitors in selected areas around the UK.

The next Free Wills Month is October 2024. Please check back then for more details.

How do I take part in Free Wills Month?

  1. From 1 October 2024, go to and enter your postcode to find details of participating solicitors nearest to you, or you can call 0333 022 0396.
  2. Choose the most convenient solicitor for you and get in touch to book an appointment. You’ll need to make contact during Free Wills Month, but your appointment can take place at a later date.

Appointments are allocated on a first come first served basis, so please contact them as soon as possible during the month. 

If Free Wills Month isn’t available in your area, please consider our other free Will writing services.

I thought it may be a complicated process but it was very easy and we had a choice of local solicitors to contact at our convenience. I was so impressed with this service that I would recommend it to anyone.
