About this volunteering opportunity

Can you spare a few hours a month to help us? We urgently need people to help us get our blind members to their social group. We run social groups for blind and partially sighted people in the Brighton, Hove, and Portslade areas. These groups offer our members a chance to get out of their homes and meet other people facing similar sight loss problems. For many these meetings are the only time they see anyone.

The groups are run once a month during the day time. If you could spare a few hours a month and have use of a car please do get in touch.
