Our free will-writing service with a local solicitor
We’re on a mission to save and change children’s lives through medical research, developing treatments, vaccinations and cures. You can support this vital medical research by making or updating a simple will for free through our partners, the National Free Wills Network.
You will be matched with a local participating solicitor to discuss and prepare your will. The National Free Wills Network includes over 800 participating solicitors. Once you have submitted your details, you will be sent an information pack in the post. The pack will include a list of six local solicitors to choose from, usually within a five mile radius of your home. You can then speak to one of the solicitors close to you to arrange how to make or update your will.
If you would prefer to make or update your will for free online, please click here for more information from our partner, Farewill.
There is no obligation to leave a gift to Action, and we know that you will want to take care of family and friends first, but we hope you will consider it. A gift in your will could lead to treatments, vaccinations and cures that change the world forever for children and their families.
