Make A Will Month

Have you been putting off making your Will? Here’s a great reason to get that job done…

Throughout March, participating Will-writers will help you make or update your Will, in return for a donation to DENS. Whether you’re writing a basic single Will, a set of basic Mirror Wills, or updating your existing Will with a Codicil, our legal partners will help you check all the boxes. Why not tick off that all-important ‘life admin’ that you’ve been avoiding, while supporting your local charity?

We all know that writing a Will is something we should do, yet many of us put it off. We’re bringing back Make A Will Month in support of DENS, so now there’s a fantastic opportunity to finally do it!


We made the decision to remake our Wills through this scheme and found it to be very easy. I would thoroughly recommend it to all, whatever age, as it benefits everyone and brings peace of mind.”

How it works

Local Will-writers are giving up their time for free to support DENS and the work we do. All the money raised through this program will be used to provide services and support to people in Dacorum facing homelessness, poverty and social exclusion. Thanks to their commitment, the donation you make in return for their professional services will be used to help people take the next positive steps in their lives.

The recommended minimum donation amounts are:

  • £175 for a single basic Will
  • £295 for a pair of basic mirror Wills

Your whole donation will be gifted to DENS to support our work, as our legal specialists are donating their time to help raise funds. These suggested donation amounts are much lower than the standard rates for Will-writing, so we would encourage people to be as generous as possible with their donation.

We expect the Will to be completed and signed within 8 weeks of starting the process, otherwise additional solicitor fees may be incurred.



There is no obligation to leave a gift in your Will to DENS by taking part in Make A Will Month, however your solicitor will be able to advise the tax benefits of leaving a gift in your Will to charity, and we hope that you consider DENS once you’ve looked after those that are most important to you. Even a small gift in your Will could make a big difference, and help ensure the future of DENS and our vital services.

If you are able to leave a gift to DENS in your Will, please know how grateful we are for your commitment to our future and those people we will be able to support with your legacy.
