Free wills month



In March, SSAFA, alongside a roster of other national charities, will be participating in the Free Wills Month.

During this month, the charities are offering supporters, volunteers and beneficiaries, aged 55 and over, the opportunity to have a simple Will written or updated free of charge. This is a fantastic opportunity for those having their Will written to provide for family and friends and also leave a gift to a charity or charities of their choice, without worrying about the cost. Having a Will also ensures that those left behind know your wishes. 

There's no obligation to include a gift to SSAFA in your Will. But, we hope that anyone who takes up this opportunity will choose include SSAFA. Every gift, a share of estate or a cash gift, big or small, will help SSAFA provide practical, emotional and financial support to our Armed Forces, veterans and their families in times of real need.

To find a participating solicitor near you, call 0345 686 4309; visit the Free Wills Month website; or email,

Appointments must be booked between 1st and 31st March 2017.  However, you can meet with the participating solicitor and have your Will written whenever you like. Each solicitor has a limited quota of free Wills they can write, and will work on a first come, first served basis, so book your appointment early. Remember to quote Free Wills Month to qualify for the free will writing service.

You can also download your free Legacy Guide and Will Planner on our website.
