Leave a gift in your Will
You can make a lasting difference to people with low vision by leaving a gift in your Will. As our population ages, the number of people with low vision will increase so there will be even more demand for cutting edge research and high-quality support services.
A gift in your Will:
- will support the continued improvement in services for people with low vision;
- will help raise public awareness of the devastating effects vision loss can have on everyday lives;
- will ensure that the best of new ideas from throughout the world are brought to New Zealand;
- will support vital research into the causes, effects and treatments of vision loss.
For more information talk to your lawyer. Making or changing a Will is normally free.

Pedestrians are New Zealand’s forgotten road victims.
Each year almost four times as many pedestrians as cyclists are killed on New Zealand roads. Yet government has no Pedestrian Safety Plan and makes no investment in Urban Pedestrian infrastructure. We need an enquiry.
Please support VICTA in this quest. Let’s make walking safer for everyone.
