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.

  • start your will online straight away, with legal advice available if you need it
  • write your will using a solicitor local to you
