Free Wills Month

Free Wills month

Every March and October, The Salvation Army takes part in Free Wills Month.

Take part and you can have your Will written at no cost in selected locations across England and Wales. If you're aged 55 or over (for couples, only one of you needs to be 55) you simply need to make an appointment with a participating solicitor before the end of the campaign month. 

There are many reasons why it is important to make a Will. If you want to be absolutely certain that your wishes will be met when you die and you want to make sure that everything goes to the people and causes you care about, then it is important to make a Will.

Making a Will makes it easier for the people you leave behind – you’ll be continuing to look after your loved ones by letting them know your wishes. Otherwise, doubts and disagreement might arise and your estate may not go to the people you intended. A Will can remove any uncertainties.

There is no obligation to remember The Salvation Army in your Will but we hope you'll consider the huge difference a gift to us in your Will can make, to our vital work providing care, compassion, and practical support to the people that need us most.

Taking part is easy, all you need to do is follow these simple steps:

  1. Visit www.freewillsmonth.org.uk or call 0345 686 4309 for a list of local solicitors who can help you make or update your Will free of charge.
  2. Make an appointment for some time during March with your chosen solicitor, quoting Free Wills Month.

If you have any queries about amending or making a will to include The Salvation Army, please contact our Legacy Team on 0800 144 4774.
