Volunteering is an excellent way to develop your skills, increase your confidence, meet new people and be part of a local charity that makes a difference!
We offer a range of services to support people who are sight impaired and their families, but we can only do this because of the huge generosity of time and commitment that our volunteers give. The contribution that our volunteers make is invaluable to our organisation and we simply couldn’t manage without them.
We ask that all volunteers complete an application form and provide two references. A DBS check will be required for some roles. Training will be provided.
Should you need any assistance or if you would like further information on any of any volunteering opportunities please do get in touch with Sue on 07932 729669 or email Sue@support4sight.org.uk.
Here is a selection of our volunteering opportunities:
To visit visually impaired people in their homes and offer practical and emotional advice and support. Also to refer to any other services as needed. Volunteers are required within the Braintree, Chelmsford, Harlow and Uttlesford areas.
To be able to drive and support visually impaired people enabling them to attend coffee mornings or events/outings particularly within the Braintree, Epping, and Chelmsford area.
We need volunteers with IT skills to help with administration duties within Chelmsford hub.
We need key, motivated people to help organise and drive our fundraising campaigns and events.
We also need people on the ground helping to run events.
These calls take place at our hub in Chelmsford. Telephone calls are made on a regular basis to those people who feel lonely or are at risk of isolation and who have said that they would like to receive a call.
