Can you spare a few hours a week to brighten someone’s day?
We are committed to supporting our blind veterans no matter where they are. Our community home visitors provide crucial social interaction for our veterans who can’t reach our centres, and can often feel isolated or lonely.
This veteran, a former Royal Marine would like to go on short walks in his local area and have a coffee with his volunteer. He also has an interest in Formula 1 and anything to do with cars! Our member would also welcome dogs to join on the walks and chat.
Although you will be working in the community independently, your manager is only a phone call away and there is a network of other volunteers for you to link in with too. Volunteers must be over the age of 18 years and understand the importance of confidentiality and relationship boundaries. The role can be flexible around your other commitments, but we ask that you are reliable and punctual for our veterans. You will be fully trained and supported so you feel comfortable and confident in your volunteering.
Potentially an interest in cars as member had this for a hobby but not necessary. Some understanding as member as well as visually impairment has onset alzheimers.
