Gifts in Wills

Your gift can help NESS to provide a future in which we can continue to support people living with sensory loss to face their challenges, overcome them and achieve as independent a life as possible.

Your gift could fund:

£100 = 5 Children from our Young People’s Sensory Service (YPSS) could experience a horse-riding session, improving their spatial awareness, confidence and social skills.

The Impact - “The kids love it and feel very included when they’re all together doing these activities. We’ve been so fortunate being members of NESS, we’ve made brilliant friends and receive great support.”

£500 = Volunteer costs (recruitment, training and expenses) of our Connect, Include and Support (CIS) groups for one month. These highly valued volunteers include our drivers, who transport our elderly service users to our social and activity groups.

The Impact - “I can’t get out unless somebody takes me, I wouldn’t get here without a driver.” “I love the opportunities for interaction with others.”

£2,000 = Accessible IT equipment for use by our ICT Officer, when running training workshops. This additional equipment makes it easier for people to borrow to try out at home before deciding what to buy.

£8,000 = Our Hospital Information Service costs at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary for three months.

£21,000 = Our Employment Service for six months, ensuring that our service users can enter, remain or return to employment with confidence and follow a career path that is right for them.

The Impact - “Thank you so much for all your help and support these past few weeks. We really appreciated your help and knowing we had you on our side made such a difference.” A service user who works offshore and is staying in employment due to the support from this service.
