Our charity has been supporting children and adults with visual impairments to overcome adversity and achieve life goals since 1859.

By remembering Visibility in your will you will be helping to ensure that we are still helping generations of blind and partially sighted children and adults in the west of Scotland way into the future.

Fiona Sandford, Visibility's CEO, talks about our need to plan for the future just as you will plan for yours

Grace and her Grandmother

“Visibility has been there for our family since Grace was seven months old. They really get to know you so that the support and information you get is absolutely right for you. It’s a really personal service. I don’t know what we would have done without them, particularly in those early months.”

Q. What does making a will involve?

A. It is quite a simple process.You decide what you want to do with what you own, work out its value and then contact a solicitor.

Q. What about my family?

A. It’s only right that your family and friends come first in your thoughts. However, if you leave money and possessions worth more than a set amount your family will have to pay 40% inheritance tax on the excess. Leaving a gift to a cause close to your heart could help reduce tax.

Q. Do I have to leave a lot?

A. Visibility would be very grateful for any gift you feel you can afford. We would spend your gift with great care; every penny will help make a brighter future for blind and partially sighted people.

Q. Do I need to tell Visibility that I have remembered you in my will?

A. It’s not necessary but we would be delighted if you do because then we could thank you.

Q. How does Visibility use gifts from people’s wills?  

A. Recently we used a generous gift to help fund our family worker. Grace, the little girl pictured above, is one of the beneficiaries of this service

Please remember Visibility in your will.
