Leave a gift in your Will

Your gift can help us to discover and develop treatments to prevent hearing loss, restore hearing loss and silence tinnitus, as well as fund life-changing services and campaigns for an inclusive society.

How your gift will help

Gifts in Wills are vital to the work we do.

Over two-thirds of the money we receive as a charity comes from the people who kindly remember us in their Will. Every gift, no matter what size, makes a real difference to our work.

Just 83p was spent on ear research per person living with hearing loss in 2018. This compared to £193 spent on cancer research per person living with cancer, and £16 spent on eye research per person living with sight loss.

For every £1 we receive, 88p goes to help people who are deaf, have hearing loss, or tinnitus.

  • We provide information and support to people who are deaf or have tinnitus or hearing loss, to help them to overcome challenges and live a full and happy life.
  • We campaign to change attitudes and make society more inclusive of people who are deaf or have hearing loss.
  • We fund pioneering research that’s bringing us closer to restoring natural hearing and curing tinnitus.

A gift in your Will could help to ensure future generations can experience the soundtrack to life.

Stephen’s story

“I became profoundly deaf in 2001 and, after some time with hearing aids, I’m so thankful to have received a cochlear implant. I have left a gift in my Will to RNID because it’s through research that this has been possible. I want to support research into future technologies to help people with hearing loss and eventually lead to a cure.”
