What is Co-op Legal's telephone Will writing service?

Co-op Legal’s free telephone Will writing service has been carefully chosen by the RNLI to help you write or update your simple Will for free over the phone.

Once you have looked after your loved ones, we do hope you’ll consider leaving a gift to the RNLI in your Will, though there is no obligation to do so. Every gift left to the RNLI in a Will, large or small, helps to keep our lifesavers safe when they face the full force of the sea to rescue someone in peril.

How does it work?

The process is simple. Here are the different ways you can get started. 

  1. Start your Will online, where you can tell Co-op Legal your wishes. A dedicated Wills specialist will call you back to answer any questions and finalise your Will. 
  2. You can request a call back from one of Co-op Legal’s Wills specialists, who will review your instructions, answer any queries and finalise your Will. 

Who can use it?

This free Wills service is available to people aged 18 or over who live in England and Wales. Unfortunately, it’s not yet available to those in Scotland, the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland because of key differences in laws around Will writing and inheritance. We’re working hard to make this available to everyone as soon as we can. If you are based in Scotland, the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland, please speak to our Gifts in Wills Team to explore other Will writing options or visit our page about writing your Will face-to-face with a solicitor. 

Thank you

We understand your priority is looking after your loved ones, so there is no obligation to leave a gift to the RNLI in your Will, but we are so grateful to you for considering it. If you do choose to leave a gift in your Will, thank you. Your special gift could be the dry suit that keeps crew warm in freezing temperatures, the lifejacket that keeps a crew member afloat when they need to jump into the depths to rescue a person in danger and the intensive training to help volunteer crew navigate a lifeboat in treacherous conditions. A gift in your Will brings our lifesavers home safely. And it’s a gift that won’t be forgotten – because if you put a gift to the RNLI in your Will, your name will be added to the side of a lifeboat as a thank you.
