Write your will for free

Get started in as little as 15 minutes

Over 50% of UK adults do not have an up to date will in place and we know how difficult it can be for those you leave behind when arrangements haven’t been made. That’s why we’re making it our mission to ensure everyone in our local area has a will and, to help, we’re offering a free will service which you can complete in the comfort of your own home – and you can get started in as little as 15 minutes.

There are plenty of options to do this too with face to face appointments available or a telephone call can be arranged if you’d prefer to speak to someone rather than completing your will online. Just scroll below and pick the option that suits you to get started. These links will take you through to our partners at Octopus Legacy to help you write your will or update your current one. And the best bit? It’s completely free of charge.

After securing your family’s future, you may also think about causes you would like to support. One in seven of our patients is cared for thanks to a gift in a will. So, if you’re considering leaving a gift to the hospice, no matter what size, we’d ensure it’s put to good use caring for local people at the end of their lives.

What difference could a gift to the hospice make?

We understand that leaving a gift to Prospect Hospice is an important decision and that thinking about life after you’ve gone can be a little daunting.

At Prospect Hospice, we understand this more than most as we’ve been providing free care for people with a life limiting illness across Swindon, Marlborough, Lechlade, Fairford and the surrounding areas for over 40 years. This is only possible now and into the future because of the support of our local community, including supporters like you who may consider leaving us a gift in your will.

A gift of 1% of your estate could make a huge difference to Prospect Hospice and the patients and families we care for, whilst ensuring that your loved ones still receive 99%.

The difference a gift in your will makes to local people

When you leave a gift in your will to Prospect Hospice, you help ease the pain and burden for local people at the end of their lives.

The day before my mother passed away we had such beautiful weather that we moved her bed out onto the patio. We sat her up in her bed so she was lying with nature all around her and could listen to the birds singing. The whole experience was extraordinary and we spent all afternoon out there. To be able to give her the opportunity to breathe fresh air and have the sense of nature around her was a real privilege and in stark contrast to our experience of the hospital. I know she couldn’t have wished for a better ending.


Prospect Hospice isn’t just there for patients, it’s there for their families too. I’ve never seen people try so hard and have so much compassion and gentleness. It felt like being normal again. I had been petrified for dad to go in, but in fact it was all so peaceful and beautiful.


When my son was born, dad was never confident holding him. He thought he might drop him or make a sudden movement because of the pain in his joints. The new treatment plan the hospice had sorted out for him meant that he finally had the confidence to pick up his grandson and give him a cuddle. For a man who was so dedicated to his family, it was just incredible to see. The hospice gave that to him and I’ll always be so grateful to them for that.
