Thank you for volunteering with RNIB. From your induction onwards, we provide ongoing support that ensures you're gaining the right skills and knowledge to succeed in your role and beyond.
In this hub you’ll find guidance and information on everything that you’ll need to know as an RNIB volunteer, such as the training available to you, our volunteer FAQs and even how our volunteers can connect with each other.

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.
Our Volunteer Council is a group of around 12 volunteers who meet on a quarterly basis (over Skype/conference call) with our Volunteering and Resourcing Team to share their feedback and discuss improvements they would like to make to the volunteer experience. They represent the volunteer voice in RNIB. Membership changes after the sixth meeting (with a new group joining every 18 months).
If you would like to share ideas, discuss suggestions, issues and solutions on wider RNIB volunteering with a Volunteer Council member, email [email protected]. Or after being a volunteer for some time would like to become part of the Volunteer Council, please email us at [email protected] (you can do this at any time of the year).
