Make your will this November with Will Aid

ActionAid is partnering 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.

How to take part

Appointments for November are now available. Just go to Will Aid’s online postcode search or call them on 0300 0309 558 for details of a solicitor near you.

Then you can contact them directly to make an appointment in November. Appointments do get filled quickly so be sure to book early.

Get in touch

If you have any further questions about leaving a gift in your will, please get in touch with our Supporter Contact team on 01460 238000 or email us at supportercontact@actionaid.org.

How much should I donate?

The donation is voluntary but the suggested minimum donations are:

  • £95 for a basic will
  • £150 for a pair of mirror wills

Why use Will Aid?

Will Aid

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Will Aid. In that time, it has helped hundreds of thousands of supporters to make or update their will while raising over £19 million for participating charities.

Making or updating a will is something that many of us tend to put off. Having an up-to-date will means that the people we care about are looked after and it ensures our wishes are carried out after we are gone.

Four great reasons to sign up for Will Aid

Making a will is an important task that too many of us put off for the future. Will Aid is a fantastic opportunity to write your will and support ActionAid’s work.

  • Tick Tick something important off
  • Family Take care of your loved ones
  • Professional Get help from professionals
  • Helping hand Help women and girls lift themselves out of poverty

ActionAid supporter Stephen Hooper told us:

Stephen Hooper

We put off making a will until we bought a house. Will Aid is a great idea to get people interested in making a will, and benefitting ActionAid at the same time. The solicitor was very thorough which reassured us that we were making the right decision to plan for the unexpected. Well worth doing it for peace of mind and the added perk that we could donate to charity as well.

Stephen Hooper, ActionAid supporter

This November, take care of your loved ones while supporting a cause you believe in.

Other ways you can help…

When using Will Aid many supporters choose to leave a gift to causes they are passionate about in their will. By leaving a gift to ActionAid, you can help make the world a fairer place for its poorest women and girls.

A regular gift from you means we can commit to being there for children like Abigail, fourteen, from Kenya, who desperately need us, both now and in the future.
