Why leave a gift in your Will to Sense?

Including a gift in your Will to Sense is a way to ensure you can continue helping children who are deafblind, or have complex disabilities, to communicate, explore their world and find moments of joy.

Fill your Will with joy

The love a parent feels when their child learns their first word in sign language. The sense of adventure when a child goes on holiday for the very first time. The nervous excitement of a first day at school.

Those are just a few of the moments of joy you could make possible for children who are deafblind, or have complex disabilities, by including a gift to Sense in your Will.

Gifts in Wills are vital to Sense – accounting for a quarter of our fundraised income. They help fund our Sense Children and Family Support Workers, who provide expert advice and specialist, one-to-one support to children and families at home, in hospital, at school or wherever needed. They fund our Sense Family Centres, which offer children’s groups, family activities, specialist toys and equipment where everything is adapted to the needs of children and people who are deafblind.

And perhaps most importantly, Gifts in Wills help Sense to honour our commitment to be there for people for as long as they need us. By making this commitment, you could be there for a child every step of the way, ensuring their childhood, teenage years and later life is filled with many very special moments of joy.

When thinking about your Will, your own family and loved ones will of course be your first priority. But by also including a gift to Sense – even a gift of just one per cent of your estate can make a difference – you’ll be including joy for years to come.

What your fellow supporters are saying

Sense is the only charity I give to and I have been a supporter for many years. I can’t imagine how it must feel to be without one’s sight and hearing, and the frustrations this can cause. I want my legacy to help those who are deafblind, and would encourage anyone who is thinking about supporting Sense with a gift in their Will to do so.

Mr Edward Clark, loyal Sense supporter

I’ve been supporting Sense for six years. As a mother of a child with rubella I know the problems facing children who are deafblind and their families. My heart goes out to every one of them. If leaving something in my Will benefits future generations of people who are deafblind, I’ll be incredibly pleased.
