We are here to support you through the Will-writing process.
We have partnered with National Free Will Network, Will Aid and the GoodWill Partnership to offer you Will-writing services. Find out what each of these schemes offer and how you can book an appointment.
National Free Wills Network
ActionAid is a member of the National Free Wills Network, that offer a local, Will-writing service – with ActionAid paying a discounted rate on your behalf.
If you take up the offer, there is no obligation to include a gift to ActionAid, however we hope that you will consider us.
A gift left to ActionAid will make a lasting difference and transform the lives of future generations of women and girls living in poverty.
In order to have your Will written for free, please provide us with your full name and postal address by contacting our friendly supporter contact team on +44 (0)1460 238 000 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our partners within the National Free Wills Network will then send through a list of participating solicitors in your local area, along with some useful information on writing your Will. You can then make an appointment to see a solicitor.
ActionAid has partnered with Will Aid to give you the chance to have your Will professionally drawn up by a qualified solicitor this November.
Instead of paying a solicitor’s fee, you are invited to make a voluntary donation which will help fund life changing work around the world.
All donations made via Will Aid are divided between the nine participating charities – including ActionAid. Use Will Aid’s online postcode search below to find a solicitor near you, or call them on 0300 0309 558 for details.
The donation is voluntary but the suggested minimum donations are:
- £80 for a basic Will
- £100 for a pair of mirror Wills
ActionAid is an official charity partner of The Goodwill Partnership, the largest distributor of home-visit, solicitor-provided Wills in England and Wales.
If you would like to have your Will drawn up from the comfort of your own home or over the phone, appointments can take place at a time that is convenient for you, including during evenings and weekends. All Wills are then checked by a panel of solicitors, who can also provide legal advice and storage of your signed Will.
ActionAid supporters can access The Goodwill Partnership’s service at a discounted rate with no obligation to leave a gift to charity in your Will.
Find out more about the GoodWill Partnership or book an appointment.
Get in touch if you have any further questions about including a gift in your Will. You can call our Legacies team on 01460 238000 or email@example.com

Each person who remembers ActionAid in their Will is in fact remembering the world’s poorest people."
A single gift can transform the lives of people for years to come
The people of Chambok Village, Cambodia, know this well.
Dengue fever was a major cause of death in the community until one supporter’s legacy funded training in its prevention.
48-year-old Pat Sam saw many children, particularly those under 18, get ill and often die. Her own son got very ill at the age of seven.
“There used to be so many cases like this in the village. When children got ill like this, we thought it was some kind of measles."
ADIFE [ActionAid’s local partner in Cambodia] provided training and knowledge about Dengue fever -what it was, how it was spread and how to prevent it.
Now rates of infection are greatly reduced and people are looking forward to a more secure future for their children.
Pat Sam said:
We followed their advice and now there are much fewer cases of Dengue fever in the village. My message to the donors would be thank you, thank you very much for the funds because it has saved people’s lives here.”
