Update your Will for free

A small change to your Will could transform a child's life. Since the very first legacy to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in 1855, gifts left to the charity in people’s Wills have been saving the lives of children like Persey (above), who comes to GOSH for life-changing treatment for a rare condition that affects her muscles.

We’ve teamed up with two Will-writing services that are simple and completely free to use.

Any gift left to the charity in a Will, no matter how large or small, will help us to fund pioneering research and state-of-the-art equipment, rebuild and refurbish wards and facilities, and provide child and family support services at the hospital. 

Choose the service that works best for you. Then let a specialist help you with the rest.

1. Book an appointment with a local solicitor (England and Wales only)

GOSH Charity is a member of the National Free Wills Network, which provides us with the opportunity to pay for a limited number of simple Wills to be written through participating solicitors. The network gives you access to a comprehensive and ever-expanding list of over 700 solicitors across the UK. It is the aim of the network to have a participating solicitor within 15 miles of every applicant. The Network was established in 2008 and is run by Capacity Marketing for Charities.

2. Book a face-to-face service with a trained counsellor, in your home

A trained counsellor comes to your home at a time convenient to you, whether in the daytime, evening or at the weekend. The counsellor will take your Will instructions and pass these on to one of The Goodwill Partnership’s panel of solicitors who will provide  you with your Will. (Please note, a solicitor will not make the visit to your home.)

To arrange for a trained counsellor to visit you at home, call The Goodwill Partnership on 01482 976029 (24 hours a day, seven days a week) or email The Goodwill Partnership.

A legacy donation

With either service, there's no obligation to leave a gift in your Will to GOSH Charity. Although once you've considered all the important people in your life, we hope you'll be inspired to kindly leave a legacy donation to the hospital.

The National Free Wills Network and The Goodwill Partnership only use solicitors in good standing with the Law Society of England and Wales, who are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
