Write your will for free
We’ve partnered with some great will providers to help our supporters write or update their wills for free
You don’t have to include a gift to World Cancer Research Fund in the will you write, but we do hope you’ll consider it, after providing for those you love. So that you can help give future generations the power to prevent cancer.
You can choose one of the options below:
- start your will online straight away, with legal advice available if you need it
- write your will using a solicitor local to you
- write your will in your home
Make your will online for free
We have partnered with Bequeathed so that you can start your online will immediately, from the comfort of your own home. You’ll receive all the support and guidance you need to complete your free online will and they offer a free 30-minute appointment with a legal firm to help you make your will.
