We want to make sure you get the most out of your volunteering time, so we aim for a vibrant volunteering environment with lots of opportunities.

You will:

  • Meet new people
  • Make new friends
  • Feel part of a team
  • Widen your own social activities

It’s all about:

  • Gaining new skills, confidence and experience
  • Developing existing skills and knowledge
  • Enhancing your CV
  • Improving your employment prospects
  • Using your professional skills and knowledge to benefit others who are in need

Maybe you want to give something back or have a desire to make a difference to the lives of others? Perhaps you have a busy lifestyle and want some quality time away from it? Do you have a hobby which you could share with someone?

Individually and collectively, our volunteers really brighten the lives of the people they meet. A small contribution of your time can make a huge difference in helping us reach more people. You’ll find more stories about the many and varied roles our volunteers do on our blogs.https://www.sightconcern.co.uk/news-and-events/
