Be a friendly guide for a visually impaired person

by Sandwell Visually Impaired CIO

We are looking for helpers who can support a blind or visually impaired person to get out and about, enjoy everyday activities - and have fun! We need volunteers who are confident at explaining things, have patience and empathy, and can spare a little time. Activities could be as simple as going for a walk, shopping, or a gym session. You would be providing one-to-one sighted guide support and social interaction to our members who want to get out and about - assisting with queues, one-way systems and potentially the need to maintain social distance. All activities would comply with the RNIB guidelines and training provided.
