Volunteering Gloucestershire
Gloucester, Gloucestershire
Job description

About the opportunity

Blind Veterans' aim is that every veteran can find something that they are interested in, learn new skills and have a great time. Whether its sports, arts & crafts, entertainment or simply just socialising on a day out, there is something for everyone.

You will be helping to make sure everything runs smoothly and ensuring that all blind veterans can get involved. Sometimes this will mean providing descriptions of things where they may not be able to see, or guiding a veteran to help them orientate themselves. For this role, we are looking for volunteers who aren’t afraid to get stuck in, and even learn new skills themselves.

Volunteers must be over the age of 18 years and understand the importance of confidentiality and relationship boundaries. The role can be flexible around your other commitments, but the charity ask that you are reliable and punctual for their veterans. You will be fully trained and supported so you feel comfortable and confident in your volunteering.
