Write or update your will for free

Making your will can be simple, but if you’re not sure where to start, we’re here for you.

Free will writing service

We understand how important it is to have an up-to-date will. But we know that a surprising number of people in the UK haven’t yet prepared a will, or have wills that are now invalid.

To help we’ve teamed up with some trusted will-writing providers. They can help make writing or updating a legally-binding will as easy as possible for our supporters. And you can get peace of mind, knowing you’re in safe hands.

We have a wide range of free will writing services to suit your needs. We’re working with the National Free Wills Network, Octopus Legacy and The Goodwill Partnership. So you can choose to write your will for free by:

  • visiting a solicitor local to you
  • using an online service
  • speaking to an adviser over the phone 
  • arranging a visit in your own home

There's no obligation to include a gift to us in your will if you use any of our free will writing services. But we hope that, after taking care of your loved ones, you’ll consider including a gift that will transform the future of everyone affected by MS.
