Legal support on non-work related issues

We look after our members and their families outside of the workplace as well as in it.

Free legal advice

Members can access free initial legal advice directly from our lawyers on any matter that is not related to work.

This entitles members to up to 30 minutes of telephone advice.

UNISON’s Free Wills Service

UNISON offers a free standard wills service for members and their partners (for a mirror will). We also offer reduced rates for members’ complex wills and wills for other family members.

The simplest way to obtain your will is to use our bespoke on line wills service.

UNISON’s online wills service is very straightforward to use, just complete the online questionnaire. The questionnaire with its online guidance will carefully take you through the process. Please also find attached our standards of service quality for this online wills service.

In addition, UNISON has negotiated a low-cost wills service for members’ families and a low-cost conveyancing service for members and their families.


We can give advice to, or represent, members who have immigration problems that threaten their continued employment.
