Your legacy of joy Yellow sun with purple strokes

Your Will is a reflection of you and your values – a final statement to the world and a way of continuing to support the people and causes you care about. Your loved ones are sure to be your first priority when making a Will, but if you’re someone who cares about bringing joy into the lives of children who are deafblind, you may also want to think about including that joy in your Will with a gift to Sense.

For 65 years, Sense has been there for children and adults who are deafblind or have other complex disabilities. When mothers Peggy Freeman and Margaret Brock contracted rubella while pregnant and gave birth to babies who were deafblind, they faced huge barriers to communicating, connecting, and finding those all-important moments of joy with their children.

Together, they joined with other parents and founded Sense. Today their legacy lives on in a child’s giggles as they splash in a hydrotherapy pool, in the first time a child signs ‘I love you’, in countless joyful moments made possible by the specialist, expert support Sense provides.

With a gift in your Will, you can make these moments of joy part of your legacy too.

My son, who has learning difficulties, lost his sight and Sense has been there for him ever since. The support they provide is individual and tailored to his needs. They always try to find the right way, a way that works best for him. He has thrived with their support and this is why I have chosen to leave a gift to Sense in my Will so that they can continue helping people who are deafblind long into the future.
