Volunteering with people who have sight loss - Harlow, Saffron Walden, Braintree, Loughton & Chelmsford

Like most charities, Support 4 Sight relies heavily on volunteers and is on the look-out to recruit new volunteers to support its expanding services. People who have sight loss, or carers of people with sight loss are particularly encouraged to come forward to volunteer with the charity.

There are many exciting volunteering roles available, from visiting local blind and partially sighted people at home to helping with social trips. One new volunteer role involves being a Charity Ambassador, to raise awareness of the charity's services by talking to local clubs and organisations.

Losing your sight is devastating and getting help with coping is difficult, especially when many Social Care services are retrenching, in light of local authority spending cuts during this age of austerity. But unfortunately, the need to support people with sight loss is increasing, as more people each year lose their vision due to age-related eye conditions.
