Volunteers’ Week 2018

Thank you to all our amazing volunteers who really make a difference every day to the lives of people living with sight loss.

Collectively, thousands of RNIB volunteers have made such a positive impact. You are vital in us achieving our mission of supporting people with sight loss.

Just some of our volunteer achievements this year include:

  • Raising nearly half a million pounds with our Sooty box army.
  • Claiming over £1.1M for blind and partially sighted customers, with our benefits and concessions team.
  • Giving over 1,000 hours a month transcribing braille, audio and other accessible formats with our Transcription Service.
  • Connecting over 700 blind and partially sighted customers every week with our national telephone support groups.
  • Setting up customers with life changing technology in our Technology for Life team.

We’re sharing a few stories this Volunteers’ Week which show the different ways that our volunteers support our work, including the incredible achievements of our form filling volunteers. Find out more about our form filling volunteers.
