Why not take part in a local event with your friends, neighbours or work colleagues and support us at the same time? It might be a coffee morning, a car boot sale or a larger scale event such as a dance or race night. There are a huge number of tried and tested means of raising money in the community. With a little time and thought your idea can be converted into a new, exciting and up-to-date event.

As a Vision Support Volunteer you will help us to support people with a visual impairment who live in Cheshire, Halton and North Wales.

Volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds and age groups but what brings them together is that they are all interested in supporting people with a visual impairment.

There is something for everybody so whether you want to do your volunteering from home, in one of our offices or Resource Centres, or if you want to be out in the community there is something to suit you.

So, how can I get involved?

There are various roles as a volunteer, please check the Volunteering Roles page

What support would I get as a volunteer?

You would have the support of the Services Co-ordinator in your area and of any other member of staff involved with your work. We will also provide you with any training you may need to carry out your role. In addition all volunteers receive an induction to the organisation, and will be invited to attend an Awareness and Sighted Guiding Training.

Once a year we hold a Volunteer Celebration Day to which all our volunteers are invited.

Agreed travel expenses can also be reimbursed.

I’m still interested what do I do next?

You can either download and complete the Volunteer Application Form which is available below and the APPLICATION PACK or you can contact the Services Co-ordinator in your area for a chat and to see what is available at the present time.

We look forward to hearing from you and please remember you will be making a difference to the lives of people with a visual impairment.

*A DBS check may be needed for certain roles.*
