Why you should make a will

  • To protect your loved ones and make sure they are cared for.
  • To protect your assets and help reduce the impact that inheritance tax may have on your estate.
  • Many people assume things about what will happen if they pass away without a will in place. Make sure that your wishes are respected.

How you can make a difference

Every pound is crucial to support local people with visual impairment. As an independent local charity, we are focused on providing a range of support and helping as many people as possible, people like Richard.

Richard is registered blind, wears a hearing aid and lives alone. He couldn’t travel independently. After support from Vision North Somerset Richard can call taxis using Siri to get to the supermarket. He says, “I now have more confidence getting out of the house.”

Richard recently travelled independently to Bath from Clevedon. He had his iPhone with him and said it gave him confidence to know he could contact people if needed. He used it with Siri, for finding cafes. In Weston he used his phone to find an Italian restaurant and get directions. “It’s a backup, reassurance when going out alone. Put it in your pocket and you’ve got it if you need it.”

Helping people gain independence and enjoy their lives is what we’re all about. Your legacy or gift in memory will enable Vision North to help people like Richard into the future so thank you very much.
