Our Will-making offers and resources

Our Will making partners all offer free, fixed price or discounted Will writing services. So whether you want to make your Will at a local solicitor’s office, at home, by phone or online, there’s something to suit you.

You don’t have to remember the Macular Society in your Will if you’re using one of our partner services. But we very much hope that, after taking care of your loved ones, you will wish to leave a gift to us. Your gift will fund world-class research to find a cure for macular disease, and make sure no one, long into the future, ever has to face sight loss alone.

  • The National Free Wills Network. Our membership of the Network means we can offer a limited number of simple Wills or mirror Wills for free to those aged 55 and over, via over 800 local solicitor firms. The service is free to the client, with the Macular Society paying a fixed discounted fee for each Will. Once you have registered your interest with us, we share your details with the Network, who will send you a list of participating local solicitors.
