Write your will for free

Protect those closest to you whilst supporting fellow engineers and their families.

Writing your will and planning for your and your family’s future is one of the most important things you’ll ever do. But you might find the prospect of creating your will quite daunting, or perhaps you’re not sure where to start.

To help make the process a little easier, we’ve teamed up with the National Free Wills Network to give you the opportunity to write your will for free.

How do I get involved?

To request a free will-writing appointment, send an email to us at [email protected] and we’ll get back to you within two working days. Places are limited so get in touch as soon as you can to secure your place.

Can I leave a gift to Foothold in my will?

We understand that writing your will is a completely personal process and that those closest to you will always come first. If you use our free will offer, there’s no obligation to remember us in your will, but by doing so you can make a real difference to future generations of engineers and their families.

One in six of the engineers we support are funded by gifts in wills – whether it’s to help them provide for their family, access vital healthcare, or get back into employment. So remembering us in your will is a great way to leave a lasting legacy, whilst making a positive impact in the engineering community for years to come.

We’d really appreciate it if you would consider supporting us with a gift in your will – it would help us change thousands of lives for the better.
