Will Aid

Will Aid is an annual fundraising campaign involving nine of the UK’s leading charities. With the support of solicitors who donate their skills, they encourage people to have their Will drawn up by a professional solicitor whilst at the same time supporting vital charities.

Since 1988, Will Aid has enabled the legal profession to raise over £19 million for good causes. The Will Aid charities all work with the most vulnerable people in the UK and around the world, so that sum of money will have improved countless lives.  You can find out more about the great work the Will Aid charities do by following this link.

Over those years, Will Aid has encouraged and helped more than 300,000 people to make their Wills.  By writing their Wills, these people may have spared their family the distress of coping with legal complications as well as losing a loved one.

Participating solicitors draw up a basic Will for clients without charging their usual fee.  Instead, they invite their clients to make a voluntary donation to Will Aid.  The suggested donation level is £95 for a basic single Will or £150 for basic mirror Wills.  Donations support the vital work of the nine Will Aid charities to help people in need in the UK and around the world.

Redbrick Solutions are encouraging their clients to get involved in Will Aid by waiving their fee for all Will Aid registered firms producing Wills via Redbrick Practice Management in November.

Martin MacDuff, Redbrick Solutions Managing Director comments “Will Aid is a fantastic cause and we are delighted to be supporting both the charities and our clients this month.  Redbrick Practice Management already makes the production of Wills (which are often considered a non profitable transaction due to the low fees and time involved) so much more efficient that clients have found they are able to produce the Will in a fraction of the time and make a profit from the work.
