Do you have a few hours free once a month to help out at our local visually impaired social club in Daventry

This small time commitment can make a huge difference to a visually impaired person's life. People with sight impairment may become isolated or lose confidence and attending the Local Social Group could help them retain their independence and well-being.

 Volunteers can also help with:

  • Help to organise group meetings, occasional trips and speakers.
  • Help to organise transport for the club.
  • Help to organise finances including volunteer expenses and club funds.
  • Help to organise volunteers.
  • Attend and lead meetings with the help of volunteers.
  • Help promote the group to visually impaired people(and their families/carers).
  • Help to maintain all relevant records.
  • Undertake such other reasonable duties that may from time to time be required.
  • All of the above could be delegated to another volunteer under supervision, where required
  • Time commitment 6-8 hours a month on average
