Warwickshire Vision Support is extremely proud of it's dedicated team of volunteers.
With more than 240 individuals regularly committing their time and skills, we are able to provide a comprehensive service to our members. Our flexible approach enables you to chose when to volunteer and how many hours you wish to contribute. Whether it is a couple of hours a month or a couple of hours each day, we would love to hear from you.
We will help you with transport money so that you will not be out of pocket (currently .45 pence per mile). We are committed to supporting all of our volunteers and will provide role specific training where necessary. All volunteers will be provided with details of our policies and procedures. The training which we provide includes: Sight Loss Awareness, Safeguarding, First Aid, Moving People and Lone Working.
