A gift in your will could give a veteran with sight loss their life back.
Choosing to leave a gift in your will is a deeply personal decision which you will want to spend time considering. It is important to us that you feel reassured that your gift will be used with care and have a big impact on the veterans you choose to support.
As we continue to increase the numbers of veterans we support, your gift is so important to sustaining our work.
Our work is vital as we know life after sight loss is a scary place to be. It can leave people feeling isolated. But it needn’t be like that.
With the right support things can be very different. Across Scotland, we provide a lifeline of tailored practical advice and emotional support from the moment a veteran is referred to us or approaches us directly.
Please consider leaving a gift to Sight Scotland Veterans, and help us connect with even more people with sight loss in Scotland.
