Leave a legacy
Our loved ones are the first people to think of when drawing up a Will, the lasting expression of love for your family and friends. It is also a way of continuing your support to charitable organisations which you would like to see able to carry on the important work of a cause you believe in. Your gift of a legacy will allow us to continue helping persons with disabilities towards becoming independent and taking their place as active members of society, without discrimination.
