About this opportunity:
Can you spare a few hours a week to brighten someone's day? Blind Veterans UK are committed to supporting blind veterans no matter where they are • Home visitors provide crucial social interaction for veterans who can't reach their centres and can often feel isolated or lonely • By popping by once a week or fortnight, volunteer home visitors are a friendly face that can make all the difference to our veterans • A member in Dunfermline would like someone with a car to go out with to a local cafe or a bit of shopping • Although you will be volunteering in the community independently, your manager is only a phone call away and there is a network of other volunteers for you to link in with too • Volunteers must be age 18+ and understand the importance of confidentiality and relationship boundaries • The role can be flexible around your other commitments, but you should be reliable and punctual for the veterans • You will be fully trained and supported so you feel comfortable and confident in your volunteering •
Some training online and some in person such as Guiding Skills, Volunteer Coordinator available and Employee Assistance Programme
