Free will-writing service

Imelda and Chris Wightman

Imelda and Chris Wightman used the National Free Wills Network to 'leave a charitable legacy'

Make your will for free with CAFOD

CAFOD supporters can write a simple will at no cost either at a local solicitors' office or at home over the phone. 

For our face to face service, we work with the National Free Wills Network – a group of charities and solicitors working together to give charity supporters the chance to update or write a simple will for free. 

For our telephone service, we work with Co-operative Legal Services to offer supporters the opportunity to write their will with a professional from the comfort of their own home.  

Both services are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. 

More than 300 of our friends have already taken advantage of this great offer and you could join them in enjoying the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’ve made provision for the people and causes closest to your heart. There’s no obligation to remember CAFOD in your will but we do hope you’ll consider the incredible difference your gift could make to communities who are struggling to meet their daily needs.

By leaving a gift in your will you could make a real and lasting difference for future generations. You can provide for your family and friends here in the UK and also offer help and hope to your global family. 

We made our wills and we’ll make a difference!

Imelda and Chris Wightman

Our good friends, Imelda and Chris Wightman, wrote their wills using the National Free Wills Network.

"We needed to get our wills updated because, like many people, our last will was made soon after our children were born. And now we’re grandparents! CAFOD’s offer prompted us to act upon our good intentions.

"The solicitor was very good and the process very quick and painless. We both like the idea of leaving a charitable legacy and CAFOD was the obvious choice for us. We know the difference CAFOD makes every day to the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves."
