Job description

RNID Near You volunteer 

Role description 

Our volunteers are vital in helping us make life fully inclusive for the 12 million people in the UK who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus.  RNID hugely value the contribution of our volunteers and we achieved the Investing in Volunteers quality mark in 2023. 

What you’ll be doing 

RNID Near You volunteers help us provide free, in-person drop-in sessions for people who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus, or want to get their hearing checked. Our volunteers: 

  • Meet and greet people visiting our services, find out what service or information they’re looking for and direct them to the right place. 

  • Support hearing aid users by doing basic maintenance on their hearing aids and providing tips for getting the most from hearing aids. 

  • Help people to take the RNID online hearing check. They take people through the steps in person on a digital tablet. 

  • Provide information on a range of topics related to deafness and hearing loss. 

  • Help us to find supporters and donors by talking to people and providing information on supporting us. 

  • Support us with administrative tasks for the service. 

You don’t have to do all types of activities; you can pick the activities you find most interesting and match your skills and experience. Usual time commitment varies but is typically three hours per month. 

Full induction and training is provided and you’ll be assigned a supervisor to provide you with on-going support and to introduce you to our community of volunteers.

Requirements 

You need to be 18 or over for this role. You may need to be able to travel by car or public transport to different places. We’ll reimburse your expenses in line with RNID’s expenses policy.

We have a legal duty to make sure that all volunteers working either in person and/ or online with children and adults at risk on a regular basis are suitable. 

In addition to requesting references, we’ll carry out appropriate pre-volunteering checks in-line with regulations such as Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks in England and Wales, and equivalents in Northern Ireland and Scotland.
