A Gift in your Will of any size means you can make a visible difference locally, helping future generations with sight loss to lead independent and fulfilling lives.

Remember us in your Will and help future generations of people living with sight loss to be fully active in our community

Losing your sight shouldn’t stop you doing what you love.

But for so many blind and partially-sighted people, losing their sight can leave them feeling like a prisoner in their own home. They feel cut off from the activities, lifestyle and people that once brought so much joy.

 Here at Sight Concern Worcestershire, we believe everyone living with sight loss should continue to be an active member of our vibrant communities. Sight loss should never mean loss of fun and independence.

That’s why we provide advice, support and befriending to blind and partially sighted people living right across our county. Our life-changing services mean no one with sight loss is losing out on life.

But right now, more and more people in Worcestershire are living with sight loss and that number is set to increase in the years and decades to come.

You can help make sure future generations enjoy the same support following sight loss that you or your loved ones have received. You can include a gift in your Will.

Perhaps you have experienced first-hand the challenges of sight loss. Or perhaps you have cared for a loved one who has lost their sight. You’ll know, then, how much of a difference the advice and support from Sight Concern Worcestershire can make. Here at Sight Concern Worcestershire, we believe everyone living with sight loss should continue to be an active member of our vibrant communities. Sight loss should never mean loss of fun and independence.

The next generation is going to need our services more than ever.  With a gift in your Will, you can make sure future generations of people living with sight loss can have the support they urgently need to be fully active in our community — whatever that means to them. It will mean the next generation of blind and partially sighted people won’t feel shut out of their community and can instead live their life to the full.

If you would like to learn more about how you can include Sight Concern Worcestershire in your Will, we’re here to help you. We can answer any questions you may have.
