Giving the gift of life

EAAA is pleased to offer a free will writing scheme for our supporters in partnership with National Free Wills Network. The scheme allows our supporters to have their will written for free at a solicitors local to you.

Using the National Free Wills Network, we can put you in touch with a solicitor who will help you make or amend a simple will at no cost to you.

Gifts in Wills are an incredible way to show your support for EAAA and help to secure our life saving services for the next generation. We’d really appreciate it if you decide to include us with a gift in your will, however, there is no obligation to do so and we fully understand loved ones come first.

The National Free Wills Network offers free will-writing services to supporters of charities that subscribe to the Network.  With over 700 law firms currently involved, it is the aim of the Network to have a participating solicitor within 15 miles of every supporter referred to the service.

Gifts in wills to EAAA fund around 1 in 4 of the missions we attend.
