Volunteering is an essential part of the work we do
It makes a huge difference to the people we help.
People with sight loss often become isolated and lose confidence. Working as an NAB volunteer will positively impact blind and partially sighted people, helping them to live life to the full.
Our highly valued volunteers make a difference in so many ways:
- Offering companionship and friendship
- Helping service users maintain independence
- Reducing feelings of isolation and loneliness
