A chance to serve your community with The Salvation Army

Patricia Sheedy and Harvey Spikin

Are you looking for a way to give back to the community? We are currently seeking volunteer solicitors to support The Salvation Army Community Wills Day Program across Australia.

Payments received for this service go towards important local Salvos community programs.

Benefits for Solicitors:

  • In addition to having simple Wills prepared, Wills Day attendees often wish to have Power of Attorney and Advance Care Directive documents prepared for a commercial fee

  • The Salvation Army refers people requiring legal advice to our partner solicitors - a list of legal volunteers who have generously donated time with us in the past
  • Solicitors are added to the Solicitor Search on our website at no charge
  • An opportunity to expand your philanthropy experience

Volunteer with the Salvos and help members of your community prepare a simple Will to take care of their loved ones.

Hear from our generous volunteer solicitors

“Our lawyers and staff have been supporting the Salvation Army in their Wills Days for the past year. The Salvos are an organisation committed to providing social lift to the community and making a difference in people’s lives. We are glad to, in some way, help the Salvos in that mission through the giving of our time and skills. Our staff all look forward to assisting in some way, either in meeting to take instructions, drafting the Wills or just typing up and binding documents. Our staff all understand that in whatever way they help, they are also helping to make a difference and this gives them a real sense of meaning in their work. It has been a real joy for Munro Doig to be part of the Wills Days program.”
- Lester Ong, Munro Doig Lawyers
