Speakers

People with sight loss give presentations to organisations and groups, talk about the impact Sight Concern has had on their lives and the lives of others, and raise awareness across the County

Speaker Assistants

  • Take our speaker representatives to events at venues around the county (this will usually require driving)
  • Assist the speaker when finding their way around the venue and locating facilities and key people
  • Help the speaker set up and take down any equipment required for the presentation

We welcome volunteers of all skills and abilities. You will be given relevant training for every role and will only be expected to undertake activities with which you feel comfortable. A current DBS certificate will be required for certain roles.

To talk about any of the roles listed above, please call us on 07507 830 546 to speak to Volunteer Coordinator, Jackie Murrall. You can also contact Jackie  by email on j.murrall@sightconcern.co.uk . We’d love you to join us!
