Beacon centre for the blind currently has a fantastic volunteer programme, with over 250 locally committed volunteers who help with the day to day running of the centre and our charity shops. The centre has a wide range of roles, which enable us to offer a large number of services to the blind and visually impaired. Roles vary from one to one care, e.g. in our crafts and pottery department, to fundraising roles, which en able us to raise much needed funds for service users and assistance in our charity shops. All roles enable very rewarding experiences to take place, and are essential to the running of the centre.
