Free Wills Month offers people aged 55 and over the opportunity to have a simple Will written or updated free of charge.

The scheme uses local solicitors in selected areas around the UK.

There is no obligation to leave a gift in your Will to Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation, but we hope you’ll consider the huge difference it can make.

What a gift to DRWF can do

We will be able to continue supporting medical researchers in their quest for a cure or continue our Wellness Programmes, which support people with all types of diabetes to self-manage their conditions effectively.

Testimonial from Claire Levy, DRWF PR & Communications, who is also living with type 2 diabetes:

“Funding research into new treatments and new technologies has transformed the lives of people living with all forms of diabetes, including myself as someone with type 2 diabetes.

“DRWF has funded some amazing research over the last 23 years, made possible by the very generous donations of our supporters, which has really advanced our knowledge of the different types of diabetes and how to manage and treat it. We will only find a cure through research and your gift could make all the difference.”

How do I take part?
