RNLI - Free Wills Month

If you or your partner are aged 55 or over, you can take advantage of the RNLI’s offer to have your Will written or amended for free. This offer is available across England, Wales and Northern Ireland during the month of March.

Taking part is easy. Just call a participating solicitor by Saturday 31 March to make an appointment. We work exclusively with schemes that only use solicitors who are professionally qualified and regulated.

To find your nearest solicitor, please call the Gifts in Wills Team on 0300 300 0124 or email

We hope that if you do decide to make or amend your Will for free, you will also consider leaving a gift to the RNLI - although, there is no obligation to do so. Please note, the offer applies to simple Wills only. If your Will proves more complex, then you may be asked to pay the difference in cost.
