Considering the legacy you want to leave is really important.

Leaving us a gift in your will

A will is one of the most important documents you’ll ever write. For LGBTQ+ people, a will is even more important, as many of us have chosen families which are not legally recognised under the law. 

It is a legal document that decides how your estate (everything you own) will be distributed after you pass away. A will offers you the opportunity to reflect on your life and consider what kind of legacy you want to leave behind. 

In England and Wales, if someone passes away without a will, inheritance rules mean that your estate will be passed to your relatives in a specific order of priority, which might not match your wishes.

How do I write a will?

Once you have decided on what you would like your will to contain, visit a solicitor to have your will drawn up.

If you don’t have a solicitor, perhaps ask friends and family members for recommendations, or visit the Law Society for solicitors in your local area.

Alternatively, you can write your simple will for free through us, with our will-writing provider Co-op Legal Services.
