I pride myself on offering at-home consultations to all my clients, but this is not always possible. This does NOT stop me helping you with your Will or Lasting Power of Attorney as I am still providing the same personal, one-to-one expertise via video call such as Zoom, Facetime, Skype, WhatsApp, etc. and telephone. 


Where can you go to get help in drawing up a Will or a Lasting Power of Attorney if you live in Calderdale and West Yorkshire? If you want to talk to someone truly local, then Sally Helm at VALLEY WILLWRITING is the ideal person for you. I live in the Calder Valley and I set up VALLEY WILLWRITING as I recognised that despite making a Will being one of the most important things you can do for your loved ones, at least 50% of us aren’t doing so. Wills are often ignored – people think they’re too young, they don’t like being reminded about death, they don’t think they have anything valuable to leave, or simply that they don’t need to make one because “it will all go to my wife/husband/Civil Partner/children/partner”.

I can help you overcome these misconceptions and help make life easier for you and your family in the future. It need not be a morbid or expensive experience. VALLEY WILLWRITING is a truly local service where I come and visit you and take the time to explain in plain English what a Will and LPAs are all about and how you can best prepare for the future security of your loved ones. I encourage you to talk  about what you would like to happen to your money, property and possessions after you die and give you advice on how this can be arranged. If you have children, I also advise on how they might be cared for by the appointment of guardians and making adequate financial provision for them.

You might think you have to consult a solicitor to make a Will. You don’t, but if you do go down that route, it can be costly, more time-consuming and over-complicated. Professional, qualified Willwriters are an excellent choice for making a Will as they have the knowledge and the time to take you through the process and explore options that are right for you as an individual. However, not all Willwriters are the same. Many are unqualified & uninsured, and many try to sell you products that you might not need. I am a Member of the Institute of Professional Willwriters which means I’ve passed formal examinations, undertake annual CPD, operate under a Code of Practice and have full professional indemnity insurance.  I have also been approved as a Member of the Calderdale AgeUK group of ‘Trusted Traders’. I have a background in law and live with my family in the Calder Valley, West Yorkshire.

VALLEY WILLWRITING is all about ensuring peace of mind. I take care to ask you all the information necessary so I draw up a Will that fits you, your family’s needs and your financial circumstances, and importantly, a Will that is compliant with the Law so there are no nasty surprises in the future.
