This New Year why not use CAFOD’s free Will service? By including a gift to CAFOD, you can make a lasting difference, and share your blessings with families around the world.

Three simple ways to make your Will

Choose one of the three options and start 2024 by making your New Year's resolution one that will last for generations.

1) Make your Will online from the comfort of your home

We've partnered with Octopus Legacy so you can make your Will for free online. Their service is quick and easy to use, and because it's online you don't have to travel or wait for a face-to-face appointment.

The step-by-step process is approved by solicitors, and if you have any questions along the way, Octopus Legacy's team of professionals is on hand to help. This service is suitable for people who already have a firm idea of what they plan to include in their Will, and do not need professional advice.

2) Make your Will face-to-face with a local solicitor

The Network will send you a list of your nearest participating solicitors and a voucher to take to your appointment. You can meet with your chosen solicitor at their local office to discuss your wishes and prepare your Will. This is a good option if you would like to make your will face-to-face with a solicitor.

3) Make your Will over the phone with the Co-op

You can make your Will with a specialist Will writer from the comfort of your home. Appointments are available six days a week including evenings. This is a good option if you would prefer to make your Will from your home but would also like to discuss your wishes with a Will-writing advisor.

Use CAFOD's free Will-writing guide

We also have a free Will-writing guide to help you prepare for making your Will.

When you come to make your Will, we hope you'll consider CAFOD's life-changing work with families around the world, but there is no obligation to include a gift to CAFOD in your Will.
