Making a Will and planning a future for family and friends is one of the most important things everyone, at some point in their life, has to consider. For many however selecting the right solicitor, the uncertain costs and the thought of making decisions around the writing of a Will, with its bewildering array of legal terms is often seen as a daunting task. However, by using our ‘Will to Remember’ voucher scheme, you can confidently choose a local solicitor from one of our approved participating solicitors and receive a discount of up to £150 off the cost of the planning and writing of your Will.

‘Will to Remember’ is available to our supporters, people with dementia, carers, members, volunteers and staff. It will also be available to people who have not yet heard or are not yet supporters of Alzheimer’s Society. We want to express to everyone the importance of having a Will. Through ‘Will to Remember’ we offer the opportunity for users of the scheme to make their own choices in planning the future, by accessing the appropriate legal advice.
Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) is an independent, national organisation of lawyers, such as solicitors, barristers, and legal executives who provide specialist legal advice for older and vulnerable people, their families and carers. SFE have worked closely with Alzheimer’s Society on a variety of projects and are passionate about ensuring everyone has the opportunity to have a Will written and have supported the development of ‘Will to Remember’ in ensuring we offer the right offer to its members and potential users of the scheme.
Justine Clowes SFE vice-chair
“I am delighted that SFE and Alzheimer’s Society are working in partnership on the ‘Will to Remember’ Scheme. Members of SFE will know what a valuable source of support Alzheimer’s Society can be to our clients and their families when they are faced with living with dementia. We also know how important it is that people are encouraged to seek robust advice and guidance from legally qualified professionals. I believe that our members are the professionals best able to provide that advice. The ‘Will to Remember’ Scheme will enable us to provide best advice and to potentially change the future of dementia by encouraging gifts in Wills”
Gedye and Sons currently have two staff that are SFE members and are pleased to announce their involvement in ‘Will to Remember’.

“I am delighted to be supporting this venture. Recent Law Society figures indicate that sixty five percent of people in the UK do not have a Will. This valuable document should be seen as a long term investment which protects that legacy. A correctly drafted Will is imperative and conveys your deeply personal wishes after an often life long working career. To plan for one’s family, friends and other beneficiaries such as those charities that may have supported you after the event is so important.
