Free Wills Month

Every March and October, you can have a simple Will written or updated free of charge as part of Free Wills Month.

We're pleased to be one of the charities behind Free Wills Month

You can provide for family and friends and – if you choose to – leave us a gift. You don’t need to have a link to diabetes to take part. Find out the details.

Make a Will for free

Appointments for Free Wills Month are limited, so we recommend you book yours as soon as you can. The offer finishes once they're booked up, which can be before the month ends.

Anyone 18 or over can also have a Will written or updated for free at any time of the year through National Free Wills Network.

Let your gift be a cure for diabetes

If you have your Will written or updated for free with us, there's no obligation to leave us a gift. But once you’ve made sure friends and family are looked after, we’d be very grateful if you'd consider it.

Gifts in Wills fund a third of our work. They're vital if we're to keep breaking new ground in research and care, and find a cure for the next generation of people living with diabetes, like Marley.



October is Free Wills Month – take part

If you're 55 or over (or one of you is for a joint Will):

  2. Pick a charity to support, like Diabetes UK

  4. Go to the Free Wills Month website to download and complete the short Will Planner to help you prepare.
