Legal support on non-work related issues

We look after our members outside of the workplace too. And members families are covered in some instances too.

Free legal advice for members

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

This entitles members up to 30 minutes of telephone advice.

UNISON Free Wills Service

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

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

Access UNISON’s free will 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. 

We have also negotiated a low-cost wills service for members and their families.

Personal injury

If you have been injured at work (or a loved one has been injured outside of work) you can claim with confidence using the UNISON legal service. Your case will be handled by an expert lawyer and – thanks to your UNISON membership – you won’t pay a penny in legal fees and will keep 100% of the compensation.

Even if the accident seems small or insignificant or if you’re not sure who was at fault – give UNISONdirect a call.

Clinical negligence

We offer free initial legal help for members (and their families) who have suffered clinical negligence. 

Should the advice be to go ahead with a claim, UNISON is not able to fund the future costs of these cases, but our lawyers can advise on the best way forward.

 Call UNISONdirect if you have been affected by clinical negligence:
