The Society of Will Writers's Profile
About The Society of Will Writers
The Society of Will Writers is a non-profit making self-regulatory organisation which seeks to protect the public and serve the interests of those men and women who are active professionals in our field.
The Society was founded in 1994 and has since grown to become not only the largest, but also the leading self-regulatory body governing Will Writers and Estate Planners alike. We have over 1,700 members across the UK, Europe and further afield in places such as Asia and Africa.
The Society has set itself two main tasks:
- To promote to the public at large the real need and sense in having a valid Will;
- To act as a self-regulatory body by vetting practitioners through stringent membership requirements, proficiency standards and ongoing training.
The designatory letters of the Society’s grades:
Each membership grade denotes its holders experience and is an assurance to the public that the professional they are engaging with is trained, insured and SWW code compliant.
Being a member of the Society grants access to a whole host of exclusive benefits such as use of our logos, web listings, industry discounts and services offered from our partner organisations. We also support our members
We encourage consumers not to be afraid to ask the will writer if he or she is a member of the Society. Why risk your entire estate to be dealt with under a Will drawn up by anyone other than a trained professional?
through ongoing training, regional groups and conferences, as well as a having a fully staffed technical advice team to answer queries ranging in all levels of complexity.
Most importantly of all, members are given a voice to help us steer the profession in the right direction when we meet with organisations such as the Legal Services Board and other industry stakeholders.
