Making a will

When creating a new will, it's useful to have an understanding of:

  • everything you own
  • everything you owe
  • who you would like to include a gift to
  • who you would like to be responsible for your will when the time comes

This step-by-step guide helps you record this information, so you're prepared when you talk with your solicitor.

Updating your will

If you already have a will, updating it to include a gift to the Royal Osteoporosis Society is a straightforward process.

It is good practice to regularly update your will to reflect changes in your life. Your solicitor can do this for you.

Our leaflet about updating your will can give you more information about the process.
