You can volunteer in different ways depending on your time availability, your skills, experience, aspirations and what you prefer to get involved with.

This can be anything from promoting RSBC’s work in schools, local clubs, community groups or workplaces. It could be supporting a local RSBC event or organising your own fundraising event. During these strange times of COVID, you may want to apply your excellent innovative and creative skills and knowledge to arrange an online fundraiser.

The sky’s the limit, and we would support you with developing your creative ideas during our first chat, during the volunteer training session and while you are volunteering.

Be a fundraiser – organise your own fundraising campaign with a bake-off competition or an online sale of hand-made crafts. Or set off your own challenge to complete. Or liaise with a local group or business to fundraise for RSBC or liaise with different donors to collect their donations.

Be an ambassador – give a talk or presentation about what we do, promote RSBC’s work through schools, local clubs, community groups or workplaces. Or share news about RSBC and recruit more supporters and volunteers.

This is your opportunity to make a practical difference to the lives of children and young people with vision impairment and their families. It is an opportunity to meet new people and learn new skills, such as organising events, public speaking (either online or face-to-face), networking, project management and fundraising.

You will gain experience working closely with RSBC’s busy and friendly fundraising team to boost your employability and enhance your fundraising and interpersonal skills.

Community volunteering is a flexible volunteer opportunity. You can dedicate as much time to it as you want. This can be a few times a week or a month. The time commitment depends on what activities you wish to do. There are no fixed dates, or times to volunteer. And no special skills are needed to volunteer.

You will receive RSBC bespoke volunteer training and training relevant to this role. This includes general induction and safeguarding training.
You will be supported throughout your journey and there will always be someone who will be available to answer your questions.

Get in touch with Volunteering team - [email protected] and we will set up a convenient time to have a chat about this role.
