Making your will for free

If you’d like to write or update your simple will, you can do so for free using our free wills services. Through our will-making partners Octopus Legacy and National Free Wills Network you can choose to make your will online, by phone, video appointment, or in person.

We understand that your priority is looking after your loved ones, so there is no obligation to leave a gift to GWAAC in your will, but we are so pleased you are considering it. And if you do choose to include us in your will, thank you so much.

How much you give is up to you. It could be a share of your estate or a fixed amount. Whatever you can give, your gift will protect our lifesaving service and allow us to plan for the future. With your support, we will be there for critically ill and injured people for years to come.
