Gifts in wills

You can make the world a brighter place for people who are deafblind by leaving a gift to Deafblind UK in your will.

This means that we can keep supporting people with deafblindness for years to come. More and more people are affected by deafblindness every year, and gifts in wills help us to give them vital emotional and practical support.

Your legacy can create a brighter future

Your gift could make a real difference to people living with deafblindness; it could help us to run more social groups to give people who are deafblind more opportunities to connect with others; it could give someone a weekly visit from a befriender or it could keep our helpline open so we can be there for someone who needs sympathy and support.

How you can change lives

£400 could give someone living with deafblindness a full counselling course to support them through a difficult time in their life.

£600 could pay for a person who is deafblind and their family to enjoy a respite break where they can unwind and make lifelong memories in safe, deafblind friendly accommodation

£1200 could fund life-changing assistive technology. Lots of people rely on technology to connect with their family and lead the life they want to.
