>The National Free Wills Network: Make or amend your Will for free

About the scheme

Liberty has teamed up with the National Free Wills Network to offer our members a free Will-writing service. This allows you to have a simple Will written by a solicitor in your area, completely free of charge.

Who pays for my Will?

Liberty pays at a discounted rate for simple individual or mirror Wills for our members. If you require a more complex Will, you may be charged for any necessary additional work.

The gifts we receive from members and supporters through their wills make a vital contribution to our work. There is no obligation to leave us a gift if you use the scheme, but we hope you would feel able to, once your loved ones have been provided for. Your gift – however small or large – will help Liberty challenge injustice and protect the rights and freedoms of future generations.

How does it work?

Liberty members can apply for a National Free Wills Network pack by emailing membership@libertyhumanrights.org.uk or calling 020 7378 3663.

The National Free Wills Network will send you a voucher and a list of participating solicitors in your area. You will then have up to 60 days to make an appointment with your preferred solicitor who will help you draw up your Will free of charge. With over 800 law firms currently involved, the Network aims have a participating solicitor within 5 miles of each donor referred.

We only have a limited number of free Wills available each year so this offer is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Additional information

You can leave a legacy either directly to Liberty or to our charitable sister organisation, the Civil Liberties Trust. The Civil Liberties Trust is a registered charity (no. 1024948) which supports the charitable aspects of Liberty’s work. Gifts made to the Civil Liberties Trust are exempt from Inheritance Tax (IHT) and may reduce the tax liability for your loved ones if your estate is over the IHT threshold. Your financial advisor/solicitor will be able to give you more information.

Liberty does not offer legal advice relating to Wills. Any solicitor you are referred to as part of the National Free Wills Network is an independent professional from whom you will receive impartial and confidential advice. Inclusion of a firm of solicitors in the scheme does not imply a recommendation by Liberty.

>Remember Liberty in Your Will

"The fight that is never done". That’s how Liberty’s first President E.M. Forster described our work in 1942, and the years since have proved him right.

Every generation faces different threats to its fundamental rights and freedoms. The only thing we can be sure of is that the attacks will keep coming. Why? Because civil liberties are inconvenient for those in power. Human rights stand in the way of control.

Liberty will never give up the fight. We can't always see where the next threat will come from, but with your help we will be ready. By leaving a gift to Liberty in your Will, you can help us protect the rights and freedoms of generations to come.

Supporting us through your Will

We would not be the organisation we are today without the kindness of members and supporters who leave us gifts in their Wills. Many people think that only the very wealthy leave money to charities in their Will, but this really isn’t the case. Your gift – however small or large – will help Liberty challenge injustice, speak out against abuses of power and make our country a fairer place.

Reasons to write or update your Will

Having a clearly written and up-to-date Will is the only way to make sure your final wishes are carried out. It is a last chance to remember the people and causes you care about and helps avoid confusion and stress for loved ones at a difficult time.

Making a Will is relatively straightforward but we would always recommend talking to a solicitor. Because gifts in Wills make such an amazing contribution to our work, we offer a free Will writing service to Liberty members through the National Free Wills Network.

The Civil Liberties Trust

You can leave a gift either directly to Liberty or to our charitable sister organisation, the Civil Liberties Trust. Liberty is not a charity, which leaves us free to carry out all the work necessary to protect and promote human rights, including our political campaigning.

The Civil Liberties Trust is a registered charity (no. 1024948) which supports the charitable aspects of Liberty’s work. Gifts made to the Civil Liberties Trust are exempt from Inheritance Tax (IHT) and may reduce the tax liability for your loved ones if your estate is over the IHT threshold. Your financial advisor/solicitor will be able to give you more information.
