My Guide

Why volunteer?

  • You will make a real difference to the lives of blind and partially sighted people
  • Learn new skills that enhance your CV
  • Make new friends
  • Give something back to your community

What does it involve?

You will be partnered with a visually impaired person for one hour per week for 3 - 6 months.  During this time you will:

  • guide your partner to take part in social or leisure activities such as walks, going for coffee etc
  • help your partner establish lasting relationships with community members who can in turn help them get out more
  • work with your partner to achieve clear goals that help them become independant
