Your Will specifies how you’d like your estate (what you own – money, possessions and property) to be distributed after you die. If you don’t leave a Will, the law decides how your estate should be passed on so please do think about writing a Will today.

Book a face-to-face appointment with a local solicitor

If you would like to work privately with a local solicitor to write a Will, we work with local solicitors based in East London and Greater London, who can help FREE OF CHARGE.  If you are ready to write your Will please email requesting a Will referral.

Different partners offer appointments at their local East London office or have telephone, video or home appointments. If you specify your preference in your referral request we will be able to recommend you with the most appropriate solicitor.

You can also choose to attend a Will workshop which the Hospice hosts every 2 months where we take it in turns to invite our local partners in to meet our supporters and answer any questions.

“I had a very positive experience writing my Will by telephone with Farewill. The answers I received to my questions were very useful and helped me gain clarity. I was able to fully express my wishes for my Will.”
