Our Free Wills Service

Although it is important that everyone has an up-to-date Will, we know  there can be financial barriers to getting a Will written.

That’s why we’ve partnered with Bequeathed and their A Will For Good scheme.

This scheme allows you to write your Will for free with Bequeathed’s in-house legal team, who can support you along your Will writing journey and give you all the information you need.

There is no obligation to include Manchester Foundation Trust Charity in your Will should you use this service, but we do hope you will consider leaving us a gift in your Will. It would mean the world to our patients and families across Manchester.

You could leave a legacy to be proud of.

Penelope’s Legacy

A wartime plea from the staff at our children’s Hospital saved Penelope’s life. Inspired, she would begin a career in nursing right here in Manchester. Penelope was dedicated to caring for poorly children throughout her life, and even in death, through the kind gift in her Will left for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. Her daughter, Lady Katharine Bryan, shares her story.
