What is The National Free Wills Network?

The National Free Wills Network have teamed up with local solicitors across the UK and some of your favourite charities to make it easier for you to write your Will. Having an up-to-date Will prepared by a solicitor is the best way to ensure that your future wishes will be carried out. It is also the perfect way to leave something to help the charity continue their vital work for generations to come, though there is no obligation to do so.

139 charities are involved in The National Free Wills Network, along with 808 solicitors, who offer the charity a reduced rate to write a simple Will for the charities' known supporters. All solicitors act exclusively in the interests of their client and not the charity.

You can find out more information about The National Free Wills Network here.

What type of Will can be written?

The MND Association is offering a limited number of simple or mirror Wills to be written by a participating solicitor through The National Free Wills Network. It also includes the update of an existing Will. A simple Will is defined by each firm of solicitors and may vary. If a more complicated Will is required, the simple element remains free and the solicitor is entitled to ask you to pay the difference.

Who can use our free Will service?

We are offering this service to any of our supporters who are thinking about writing or amending their Will. There is no restriction on age to take advantage of this service.
