How to use the service

When it comes to making your will, it can seem like a daunting job – but it doesn’t have to be.

We’ve partnered with Bequeathed to offer you a new and entirely free will-making service, taking the hard work out of creating your will and offering you guidance from a legal professional along the way.

Why make a will?

Having an up-to-date will is the only way to make sure the people and causes you care about are looked after when you’re gone.

Once you’ve taken care of friends and family, The Fire Fighters Charity would be extremely grateful if you would consider supporting us with a gift in your will too.

The donations that supporters kindly leave to us in their wills are vital in helping us to ensure that we can provide mental health, physical health and social wellbeing services online, through our centres and in communities around the UK to the whole fire family, now and for generations to come.

There is no obligation to include a gift in your free will, but any amount you decide to gift will ensure that those who have dedicated their careers to the safety of their communities will always have somewhere to turn when they are in need.

What is the free will service?

Bequeathed takes you through the process of making a will online, in three simple steps. Once you’ve completed an interview to draft your will, a member of staff from one of Bequeathed’s partner legal firms will advise you on how best to go forward in a free 30-minute appointment, in person or over the phone.

Once your will is complete, the firm will help you with getting it signed and witnessed, as well as storing it for you for free.

While there is never any charge for a standard will, which is suitable for most people, if your circumstances are complicated and you require further legal advice, the legal firm will explain what’s needed and give you a quote to consider.

How to use the service

Simply follow these three steps to get started online:

1. Take the online will interview: Complete the online interview and Bequeathed will create your will from the answers you give, with support and guidance available throughout. You’ll then be transferred to one of their partner legal firms.

Get started

2. Attend a 30-minute appointment with a legal professional: You can do this via telephone or video call, at-home or in-office, with a lawyer. The firm will discuss your situation and your wishes and confirm the will fully caters for your needs.

3. Receive your free Will For Good in the post: Sign it in front of witnesses and return it to the legal firm. They will check it has been executed correctly and securely store it for you, free of charge.
