There are a number of ways that you can volunteer at Useful Vision. You can• Assist the Activity co-ordinators at Events• Act as a sighted guide for blind or partially sighted children• Help with administrative tasks in the office
As with all staff and volunteers who work with the organisation, you will have to undergo an enhanced DBS check as well as providing us with two referees. Once you have submitted this application, someone will contact you to arrange an informal chat and answer any questions you may have. They will also complete the DBS form with you. Useful Vision will cover all the costs of the DBS.
We offer support and training. Any travelling and subsistance expenses incurred during your voluntary work can be claimed back from Useful Vison. Car mileage is paid at the rate of 35p per mile to and from activities.
We look forward to working with you.
