Help yourself and a charity this November

Published: 11 November 2012

Will Aid is a scheme that helps people make or amend their will, whilst helping out a charity. For the whole of November participating solicitors have agreed to waive their legal fees and help you write your will in return for a donation to one of the nine chosen Will Aid charities. 

Making a will is the best way to make sure that your personal belongings and assets are dealt with as you would wish after your death. Solicitors' fees can be expensive, so whether it is drawing up your first will, making amendments or adding a codicil to your existing will, take a look at the Will Aid website and put the cost of the fee towards supporting a charity instead. To find a solicitor nearest to you that has signed up to the scheme you can call the hotline on 0300 0300 013.

You might also take this time to consider leaving a gift in your will to a charity of your choice. If you are considering leaving a gift to NAM and want to help us to ensure we can continue to support people with HIV in the years to come, you can find out more here or read our recent blog for more information.
