Legacies / Wills / In Memoriam
By leaving the Society a bequest in your Will enables us to continue to make a difference to people of Fife who are visually impaired or blind. We currently assist over 2,000 visually impaired people in Fife.
We believe that visual impairment should not lead to loss of independence or freedom of choice. As far as possible, people should remain in control of their own lives.
We help individuals’ retain their independence by:
- Visiting people in their own homes to offer advice and support and to co-ordinate statutory services
- Advising and training people in safe and independent travel and mobility schemes
- Helping people cope with everyday tasks such as cooking, housework, and
- personal care providing training in Braille where appropriate
- Recruiting and supporting volunteers to act as befrienders, escorts, and drivers or to share special interests such as rambling, bowling and swimming
- Seeking solutions and providing assistance that is appropriate for each individual
Much of this support and help has been provided through the generosity of previous generations who have left a bequest to the Society in their wills.
As people live longer, there are more people in Fife suffering from sight problems. We want to help these people, but without the continued support of this type of giving, we may not be able to run all of the services that we would wish to provide.
Here are a few of the ways in which your money may help

Why it is important to make a will
