Leave a gift in your Will
With a gift in your Will to Sense International, you can bring joy, laughter, and wonder to children with deafblindness or complex disabilities. Being a Sense International supporter is a special commitment, and your gift ensures that children and families can experience the love, laughter, and joy they deserve.
Why leave Sense International a gift in your Will?
Your Will is a reflection of you and your values – a statement to the world about what kind of place you’d like it to be. We understand that for many people loved ones will come first; but with a gift to Sense International, you can bring happiness to children with deafblindness too.
For 30 years we have ensured people with deafblindness can access education, health care and the means to earn a living, so they can live life to their full potential.
Your gift to Sense International could go towards:
- Early screening to provide essential sight and hearing support including assistive aids such as glasses, canes, hearing aids
- Activities, toys and equipment for sensory therapy
- Expert advice and essential one-to-one support for families
- 121 educational support in the home
- Learning assistants supporting children in schools
- Training to help in getting a job and support in setting up a small business
“We received a special seat from Sense International, so Hassan can sit up at home and be part of the family. This has enabled him to make friends in the neighbourhood as they move around with the special seat. His joy is visible when interacting with other children, and this has raised some level of awareness. It makes such a big difference to him, and to me.”Zawadi, Hassan’s mother
