Will Writing Support Service
We believe that everyone should have equal and fair access to managing their own money and affairs, despite living with a sight loss condition.
Our Will Writing Support Service is here to ensure that people living with sight loss can receive the right advice and best service when making their Will, knowing that their solicitor is equipped with the skills to be able to assist them in the best way possible.
Galloway's will work closely with these law firms to ensure they are provided with as much knowledge and support as they require to provide you with a specialised service tailored to meet your needs. Each firm will complete Visual Awareness training through Galloway's and be provided with a Visual Aid Kit.
How does the Will Writing Support Service work?
If you don't yet have a Will or Power of Attorney in place, or need your Will updating after a change in your circumstances, we would be delighted to help.
Speak to our Legacy Manager, Holly, or any member of the Galloway's team who will be happy to discuss the service in more detail and, if you wish, arrange an informal discussion with one of the supporting solicitors firms.
Once you have found a solicitor you are comfortable working with, we can:
assist you with making an appointment for a place and time to suit you (at home, Galloway's or the solicitor's office)
arrange transportation to and from the appointment (if required) or provide you with assistance in checking public transport if you would prefer
provide a list of documentation you need for the appointment in a format suitable for you (large print, braille, audio etc.)
discuss with you the accessibility of the appointment location i.e. parking, entrances, etc. so you are prepared
ensure that the solicitor you are meeting is completely understanding of your needs and ready to welcome you on the day.
PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO COVID-19, SOME OF THESE SERVICES MAY HAVE BEEN ADAPTED OR NOT BE CURRENTLY POSSIBLE. PLEASE CONTACT GALLOWAY'S OR THE SOLICITOR FOR ADVICE.
