We have volunteers across a range of ages, and at different stages in life; those who are still working, some who have retired and students wanting to gain experience in the workplace. We also have a large number of volunteers who are blind and partially sighted, who have found that the experience has helped them overcome barriers they used to face. If you're a current volunteer with us, there's also the opportunity to get involved and share your own story
Confidence Building volunteer, Susan opens up about what she enjoys the most about volunteering with RNIB, what she has gained and why being a volunteer has changed her life.
Are you a current or former volunteer and would like to share your experience of volunteering with us? We'd love to hear from you.
I love talking to people and sharing stories. It’s done me good and I get a lot out of it. Volunteering has made me come out of my shell.
Tina Haigh, support volunteer
