Making your Will may seem like a daunting or expensive task – but it doesn’t have to be.

We have partnered with FreeWills.co.uk to provide you with the opportunity to make your fully comprehensive legally-binding Will for free. You can make your personalised Will online in three simple steps, from the comfort of your own home and have the added reassurance that your Will will be checked, vetted and approved by a solicitor.

Gifts in Wills are a great way for you to leave a lasting legacy for a cause that is close to your heart. Whilst there is no obligation to make a donation, we would be extremely grateful if you could support us with a gift in your Will. An autism assistance dog means more freedom and independence for an autistic adult or child and your legacy could ensure we continue to provide this precious gift for years to come.

Our Autism Assistance Dogs play an important role in supporting autistic individuals, not just as companions but as lifelines to their handlers. Beyond offering emotional support, our dogs enable individuals to overcome daily challenges, fostering a sense of independence and confidence.
Together, we can make a lasting impact on many lives.

Three great reasons to make a Will and keep it up to date

1. Make it easier on friends and family
A Will makes it much easier for your family and friends to take care of your estate and be sure they’re acting on your wishes. Without a Will, the process can be difficult, stressful and time-consuming.

2. Help to minimise inheritance tax
If you’ve got a Will, it can help reduce the amount of inheritance tax that needs to be paid on your estate.

3. Protect the rights of your partner
If you and your partner aren’t married or in a civil partnership, you don’t have the same automatic rights as those who are married. You can make sure your partner is looked after by naming them in your Will


Do I have to leave Autism Dogs Charity a gift in my Will to use the Free Will Service?

No. Your Will is your business so it’s entirely up to you whether you choose to leave us a gift or not.

Why make a Will?

Making a Will is the best way of ensuring that your wishes are met, and the people and causes you care about are looked after.

Why leave a gift in your Will?

Quite simply, the future of our vital work depends on gifts that people like you leave in a will. Autism Dogs Charity uses its knowledge and experience to match autistic individuals with a highly trained autism assistance dog, enabling life changing differences.

Leaving a gift in your will ensures that we’re able to continue training dogs to support autistic people now and into the future. We promise to use your legacy gift wisely and effectively and will always respect your wishes and privacy.

What if I change my mind?

Including a gift to Autism Dogs Charity in your Will does not make it a binding commitment while you are still alive. You can change your mind and amend your Will again at any time

I already have a trusted solicitor. Can I use them to leave a gift to Autism Dogs Charity?

Yes, you can use your own solicitor to draw up your Will, although it’s unlikely to be free to do so. Simply tell them you want to include a gift to Autism Dogs Charity in your Will and they will arrange it for you.

Once completed, we would be grateful if you could let us know so that we can thank you, by emailing giftsinwills@autismdogs.co.uk.

If you have already written a Will and would like to leave a gift, you can create a codicil with your solicitor, which simply allows you to update part of your Will.

What are the Autism Dogs Charity details that need to be included in a will?

Our registered charity number is 1199343 and our address is Millpool Farm, Wards Lane, Congleton, CW12 3LN
