Volunteering

The Society relies on the generosity and commitment of its dedicated team of volunteers, without volunteers we would not be able to sustain our services.

People volunteer for many different reasons, but one thing that unites them all is that they find it challenging, rewarding and varied. Volunteering can add a great deal to your life and the lives of those for whom you volunteer. It offers you a chance to become involved in a project or with an organisation you really care about as well as an opportunity to meet new and like-minded people. It also gives you the chance to try out something different to your ‘everyday’ job, which may lead on to new career options.

We are fortunate enough to have Volunteers of all ages and abilities who work with us to ensure that we provide the best possible services for blind and partially sighted people in North Wales. We value the input of each and every one of our volunteers. Even a small commitment can have a lasting effect on an organisation and the people it represents.

Here are some of the reasons why people chose to volunteer:-

  • Make a positive difference

  • Gain skills

  • Make new friends

  • Have fun

  • Keep busy

  • Use existing skills

  • Gain work experience

  • Give something back
