Free Wills Service

We have special schemes that enable you to make your Will for free, online, by phone or by visiting a qualified solicitor.

The schemes are intended for RNLI supporters, or their partners. You don’t have to include a gift to the RNLI in the Will you write, but we do hope you’ll consider it, after you’ve provided for your loved ones.

Here’s how it works

  • You fill in this form and tick the free Wills services box.
  • Our partner, the National Free Wills Network, sends you the names and addresses of at least two local firms of solicitors.
  • Your chosen solicitor draws up your Will free of charge. Some conditions apply. You have to be 55 or over and have a relatively simple Will.

Why is it important to make a Will?

If you aren’t married, writing a Will can protect your partner.

If you live with a partner you’re not married to, even if you have children together, you cannot inherit anything from their estate, and they cannot inherit anything from yours, unless you make your wishes known in a Will.

If you die without a Will, your estate will go to your blood relatives, and nothing to your partner. Our Free Wills Service is a good way to protect someone you love.

A lot of people include a gift in their Will to the RNLI while they are using this service. You don’t have to, but we do hope you’ll consider it. Remember, a gift of any size can be put to good use.
