Supporter terms and conditions
You must be aged 18 or over to use the service.
This offer is only available in England and Wales.
There is no obligation on users of the Service to leave a gift to CAFOD.
You must consent to Co-op Legal Services providing CAFOD with your full name, address, date of birth and whether or not you have included a gift to CAFOD in your will.
CAFOD reserves the right to withdraw the Free Will Service.
CAFOD will get in touch to thank you if you’ve been kind enough to leave a gift in your will to our work when using our Free Will Service.
CAFOD pays for supporters to write a standard single Will or standard mirror Will because legacy gifts are one of our most important sources of funding. Helping remove the barriers of will-writing means that more people can include a gift to CAFOD in their will.
CAFOD do not pay for more complicated Wills. If there are additional costs on top of a simple will, the supporter will need to cover the extra cost. The supporter should discuss any needs with the will-writer and check that the cost of the will is covered to avoid any unexpected fees. Please note Co-op Legal Services alone, not CAFOD, has control of and is responsible for preparing your will.
Co-op Legal Services is independent of CAFOD and participating in the Free Will Service does not imply a recommendation by CAFOD.
