Volunteering and coronavirus
All face-to-face volunteering is suspended to ensure that you remain safe and well. In the meantime, we will offer telephone and online alternatives where possible. We’re exploring ways that you might be able to volunteer from home and continue to support customers remotely. We would encourage you all individually to follow any government guidance relevant to you by visiting their website.

Join our Volunteer Council
The volunteer council are a small group of volunteers who meet to share ideas, discuss issues, make suggestions and find solutions with members of the volunteering team. They represent the volunteer voice in RNIB and meet quarterly via phone or Microsoft Teams.
Amanda said: “I love being on the Volunteer Council because I can give my opinion without feeling I'm causing problems. I’m working with lovely people on the Council and also there are lovely staff working with us. I feel people should join the Volunteer Council because you will be able to help make decisions in RNIB and be part of things.”
We’re currently recruiting new members who haven’t previously served a term on the Council, so if you’re a solution focused RNIB volunteer and would be interested, please apply. If you’ve got an issue that you’d like to raise with the Council for discussion at a future meeting, please contact our volunteer Chair Person at [email protected].
