Home Visitor Volunteers visit people living on their own helping to read correspondence; share a book or newspaper; check use-by dates on food in the fridge; or simply have a chat and a cup of tea.
If you have a caring and patient nature, enjoy meeting people and are willing to donate a few hours each month then you could make a real difference and brighten up someone’s day.
Clubs & Groups
Club Volunteers are needed to help out at our 14 social clubs across Warwickshire.
There are many ways to participate, from event planning and keeping accounts to arranging the venue and serving refreshments. Of course the most important part is to sit down and have a chat with the members.
Volunteer Drivers are needed to help take our members to and from the various clubs and meetings around the County. If you have your own car and would like to help we would like to hear from you.
Office Volunteers are sometimes needed at our Warwick office to help with general office duties such as photocopying letters, and addressing/filling envelopes for our large membership mailing list.
Fundraising Volunteers are needed to help with our general fundraising strategy as well as supporting store and street collections. If you are interested in fundraising and can spare a couple of hours when we are collecting in your area it would be a real help to us. Alternatively, you may have letter writing or public speaking skills.
Vision Support Centres
We need volunteers to help our coordinator to arrange the venue, greet people on arrival, help with refreshments and provide a friendly face and a listening ear.
We have Vision Support Centres in Atherstone, Bedworth, Coventry, Leamington, Nuneaton, Rugby and Stratford..
IT Support Service
We are looking for volunteers who can train visually impaired people to use digital technology in accessing the Internet. If you are interested in sharing your IT skills either online or face-to-face please get in touch.
This service provides sighted guides to our members to enable them to get out of the house and into the local community.
We will provide you with training and support as you help our members to go shopping, attend classes and generally participate fully in their local community.
We are always looking for people who can contribute feature articles of interest to our readership. We also have a vacancy for a Deputy Editor.
