Do you have a couple of hours free once a fortnight to become a home visitor/befriender for NAB in your local area of  Daventry

This small time commitment will make a huge difference to a visually impaired person’s life. People with a sight impairment often become isolated and lose confidence. 

A volunteer role within our visiting service will help them regain and retain their independence and well-being.

Volunteers can help with tasks such as;

  • Fortnightly home visits
  • Assistance with reading mail, newspapers and correspondence
  • Accompanying clients on short walks, visits to the doctor or hospital
  • Occasional shopping trips
  • Assist with labelling food and household items to increase safety

Please note, this is not a domestic or personal care role.


Skills

Personal Attributes Caring and supportive with a willingness to understand visual impairment, you are able to make a commitment on a regular basis.
