We’re celebrating Volunteers Week (1-7 June 2023) and our wonderful volunteers who do so much to make a difference to the lives of visually impaired people in our county. And, it’s a great opportunity to tell even more people about volunteering, and what a positive impact it has.

What is Volunteers Week?

Volunteers Week is an annual celebration of all the fantastic ways that volunteers contribute to society. It’s an opportunity to say thank you for everything they do.

Choose your time

Are you interested in knowing more? Any time you can give is valuable to us. Whether it’s an hour every now and then, a few hours a week or helping us on an outing for a day; you control the time you can spare.

Making a difference

There are many ways you can make a difference to NAB, however you choose to volunteer:

  • Become a befriender: visit a visually impaired person in their own home or by chatting to them on the phone, and offer them the valuable benefit of your time and company
  • Help at one of our Social Eyes activities: come and join in the fun and support visually impaired people to increase their confidence at an event in your area of the county
  • Read for the weekly Talking News: help visually impaired people access information in their local area by becoming a reader for the talking newspaper and enrich someone’s life
  • Social club assistance for our get together groups across the county
  • Fundraising – help our fantastic Fundraising Officer by raising funds at one of our events or by taking part in one of our sponsored challenges, such as our annual Tunnel Trek

The benefits of volunteering

Volunteering can offer so many benefits, including:

  • Making a difference to someone
  • Making new friends and meeting new people with similar interests
  • Learning new skills
  • Giving back to the charity
