Home Visitor - Chelmsford & Saffron Walden

We are seeking the help of friendly caring volunteers to take our home visiting service into the Saffron Walden and Chelmsford areas. This rewarding role would include offering information, support and advice as well as demonstrating items of equipment and practical aids to assist with their day-to-day living. Your involvement could make a world of difference to someone who has no knowledge of the services available to a visually impaired person, which could change their life for the better.


Volunteers will need good communication and listening skills, possess good time-keeping and be able to accurately record information from the visit. You will benefit by having good patience and respect for the needs and confidentiality of the people you are visiting. The opportunity to drive could be helpful but not essential as we can partner you with a driver as our home visits are carried out with a minimum of two volunteers. Full training and support will be provided by the Charity.
