Remember a Charity in your Will Week: 10th-16th September 2018
To raise much needed awareness of the importance of gifts in Wills, Livability took part in Remember A Charity Week from 10 – 16 September 2018. During the week, we came together with our supporters to tackle some of life’s biggest questions, such as ‘how can communities help disabled and vulnerable people in the future?’
Right now, in our society, people are facing social isolation. It’s a major health risk and disabled and vulnerable people are often hardest hit. Quite simply, many disabled and vulnerable people are not given the opportunity to become fully included and valued members of community. And as a result, around 50 percent of disabled people are lonely on any given day. It’s a staggering statistic that demonstrates why good support, innovative care and establishing positive community connections and friendships is so very vital to improving health and life outcomes and enabling disabled and vulnerable people to live their fullest life.
That’s why Livability is working hard to deliver services and projects that help people connect with their community. But with over half of Livability’s fundraised income coming from supporters who have generously chosen to leave a gift in their Will, these gifts are vital for our work to continue in the years to come. And even a small amount can make a big difference.
