Free Will Service

Need help writing your will? Barnardo's offers a Will-writing service for people aged 55+.

Barnardo's is in partnership with QualitySolicitors, who are licensed professionals operating within a code of conduct. They ensure that Wills are correctly drawn up and legal. It is hoped that should you participate in the Barnardo's scheme, you may also consider leaving a gift to Barnardo's in your Will.

Barnardo’s has agreed with each participating law firm to pay the cost of a basic will (£70) or for a mirror Will (£120) plus VAT, so that supporters can receive this bespoke service without charge.

Make a Pledge

Gifts left in wills are really important to Barnardo's. However even if you haven't made a will, making a pledge to do so in the future would really help us to find out about your future intentions.

Pledges are not legally binding so by filling out this form you are not committing yourself! You are simply allowing Barnardo's to confidently estimate future support for their cause.

Leave a Legacy

If you have already made a will but you want to leave a legacy to a charity you can make an addition or change it without re-writing your current will. This addition is called a codicil.

To leave a legacy to Barnardo's please download the codicil form below and take it along to your solicitor.

Please note however that this form is not legally binding on its own and has to be part of your main will. We advise you to seek the advice of a solicitor.

If you have any questions about leaving a legacy to us, please contact Barnardo's directly – they will be happy to discuss this with you.
