And good for charities like Merchant Navy Welfare Board.

Support Merchant Navy Welfare Board with your Will For Good

We all rely on seafarers and fishers to meet our daily needs, yet they are hidden heroes who need our help. 95% of everything we consume comes by sea. From food to fuel, cars to computers, clothes to medical equipment, it is seafarers who ensure that we have everything we need to support our daily lives.

Every year, the Merchant Navy Welfare Board supports over 40 maritime welfare charities who work tirelessly to deliver welfare support to hundreds of thousands of serving and retired seafarers and fishers. These keyworkers need our help because, quite often, they are away from their families for months at a time, spend long periods at sea, and get limited time ashore. And we know this affects their mental health and general wellbeing.

Despite the UK having one of the best maritime welfare systems in the world, so many working at sea still face challenges. Welfare charities spend almost £5 million each year to keep serving and retired seafarers and fishers safe and well, but we need your help to provide vital services.

There’s no obligation to include a gift in your free will, but anything you leave will help us continue to improve the lives of the seafarers and fishers that we all depend upon.

However, big or small, any pledge is gratefully received and will be put to the best possible use.

How it works

1. Click the Start your will online button

Our online interview securely gathers all the information your legal advisor needs from you and uses it to create a draft will for them to review. Online chat is available if you need help.

2. Attend your legal appointment

Book an online video appointment with our legal team or a meeting with your local legal firm in person. Your advisor will explore your wants and needs and explain your options.

3. Receive, sign, and witness your will

Your will comes with instructions on executing it properly. If you choose a participating legal firm, they can help you sign it, witness it, and store it securely for you too.

What you can expect from your legal advisor

A good standard will from our Bequeathed legal team includes up to 30 minutes of advice for free, or 45 minutes if you're a couple. Select this link to read the detail of what will and will not be included for free.

What you get from a legal firm will depend on what type of service you book and will be confirmed in their Client Care Letter.

All our firms are accredited, either by a regulator or through an independent professional standards body. Select this link to read more about the quality assurance of our legal team and our Will For Good legal firms.
