It is with great pleasure we can announce the launch the first version of The Society of Will Writers Member’s Manual!

This is a project which began in 2018, before being shelved and then revitalised by the SWW Professional Standards Board after they regrouped in 2019. The project led by PSB Vice Chairman Simon Brimage is the first to be completed by the board and demonstrates their commitment to supporting the Society in further developing and improving standards across the membership.

On the completion of the manual, Simon had this to say:

In writing the Members’ Manual, I have made a concerted effort for you to get the most from your membership. I have included hyperlinks for ease of use and kept each section as short and precise as possible. This manual demonstrates the true support that you receive as a member from the Society and the Professional Standards Board.

SWW Director Anthony Belcher echoed that:

This manual is part of the Society’s wider plan to improve communication with members. Launching this first version is a great step towards providing members with clear, structured, and relevant guidance. This manual will be key in helping our members get the most out of their membership and in turn supporting them in terms of compliance and consumer needs.

Members can access the handbook by logging into the Member’s Area of the website and clicking the ‘Member’s Manual’ button. A .pdf copy can also be downloaded from the same page.

The manual contains information on a wide range of topics, including information about the Society, membership, technical advice, partners, benefits, business guidance and much more. It will be a working document and along with the PSB we will update it as is necessary.

We encourage all members to read and refer to the manual when needed and welcome all feedback that you may have so that we can expand and improve the manual going forwards.

    A link to the manual would have been helpful, there is no indication of where it is.

      Hi Graham, the manual can be found in the member’s area – it says this under the quotes in the article and is linked there. Let us know if you have any trouble.
