How does Free Wills Month work?

You must be 55 or over to take part in Free Wills Month. If you and a partner are making or updating joint simple wills, at least one person must be 55 or over.

Mind's Free Wills Month is taking place in Hull & East Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, and Stockport this March.

We're also joining other UK charities in a Free Wills Month campaign in London and the surrounding areas.

If you live in one of the areas listed above, you'll find details of participating solicitors on the Free Wills Month website  from 1 March 2019.

Simply contact your chosen solicitor during the month of March and request an appointment as part of Free Wills Month.

Once you’ve booked your appointment, the solicitor will help you draw up a will according to your wishes. You remain in control throughout.

Appointments are limited, and once all available appointments are booked, the campaign will close. We’d recommend contacting your chosen solicitor as soon as possible to avoid missing out. You can find full details and conditions on the Free Wills Month website or in our FAQs section.

If you live outside the regions listed above, you can visit the Free Wills Month website to check if a similar offer is available in your local area.

You can also register for Mind’s ongoing Free Will offer.

Types of gift you could make in your will

After taking care of loved ones, you may choose to include a gift in your will to a cause you care about - like Mind or your local Mind. There are three main types of gift that you can include in your will. These are:

Cash gift

A cash gift, known as a pecuniary gift is a fixed sum of money, for example £5000. These gifts are paid out of your estate first, and then what is left is divided up as per your instructions in you will.

Residuary gift

This type of gift is a share of your estate, for example 5%. Many people divide their estate into 100 equal units, and after giving to family and loved ones, they gift a number of units to Mind.

Specific gift

A specific gift is a nominated object, for example artwork, a collection of records, or an antique. If you want to keep a particular item in your family, then this could be a good way to pass the item on.
