Looking forward to a future where sight loss is no longer a barrier

People with sight loss have the same aspirations as sighted people, and RNIB campaigns every day to change society’s attitude to sight loss and provide practical advice and support.

Over a third of our vital work is funded by the kindness of those who include a gift to us in their Will. These special gifts, no matter how big or small enables more blind and partially sighted people to access the help they need. People like James and his mum Miranda.

James has nystagmus, a condition that causes his eyes to move rapidly which he can’t control, meaning his vision is poor. Miranda told us “I’ve never wanted James to be defined by his sight loss. As he grows up. Thanks to gifts people have left in their Will, RNIB are making sure that James can achieve his potential.”

The loss of your sight can affect more than just your ability to see. It affects your ability to earn an income, your independence and your confidence. Thanks to RNIB, James is doing well at school and plays goalball, tennis and cricket and has a green belt in Karate. His mum can enjoy watching him grow up into a happy, confident young man.

A gift in your Will can help us look forward to a future where every person with sight loss can fulfil their full potential.

Jim and Mary Callaghan were inspired to leave gifts in their Will to RNIB after their daughter suddenly needed our support. They visited RNIB Sunshine House, a specialist school for blind and partially sighted children with significant learning difficulties and disabilities aged 2 to 14 to see the difference we make.
